Burton Automotive Steamfest

Exhibition and Shows

18 Apr 2020 to 19 Apr 2020

This year Maitland will welcome visitors from far and wide to experience all things steam, at the Burton Automotive Steamfest – one of Australia’s premier festivals of steam.

In 2019, Locomotive 3526 and 3265 will be featured at the event alongside a Red Rattler and Tin Hare. Watch as the locomotives race a Tiger Moth biplane at the annual Great Train Race. For a more relaxing experience, take a ride on one of the many unique train trips visiting various Hunter destinations.

See how things were done in days gone by at the interactive Rally Ground display, featuring an array of antique machinery from all over Australia including traction and portable engines.

The annual Show ‘n’ Shine is an impressive showcase of motoring history, bringing Maitland Park to life on Sunday 14 April 2019 with over 400 classic cars, food stalls, live rock ‘n’ roll entertainment and fun for the whole family.

On top of all that don’t miss the vintage diesel rides, steampunk, market stalls, road steam, mini steam train rides, face painting, live and roving entertainment and kid’s activities.

Why not make it a long weekend and check out the Maitland Gaol, or the historic township of Morpeth.
