I am a relitave of the Maitlands. My name is Rebecca Walker.
I live in Adelaide, Australia. Last year i visited the castle, and thought it was amazing. My Grandmother died a year ago, and i wanted to go there to see my family history, she had never been there before and i wanted to go for her. It was like going back it time.

“Amazing place.....”
Reviewed May 6, 2005

One of the finest place I've ever been. Nice and exquisite interior.
The exhibit includes the everyday life from the royalty to the servants, very interesting. Really worth a visit
