Publication Day: Thursday

The Lower Hunter Star-Map

Maitland & Lower Hunter Star is the community heartbeat of Maitland, Thornton, Somerset Park, Tarro, Woodberry, Beresfield and Morpeth.

Within its pages we share and salute the achievements and celebrations of the people we live and work alongside.

Maitland & Lower Hunter Star is full of all the people of the district need to know about Maitland and surrounds: community events, a complete local entertainment guide, classified and retail advertising, a trades directory, plus Maitland’s best-read Domain lift-out.

The Star also has its own portal on the Maitland Mercury’s award-winning website, its own Twitter account and Facebook page.

The Hunter Valley is the focus of diverse economic activities including agriculture, mining and industry. The area’s location on the rich alluvial flats

of the Hunter and Paterson Rivers has established its reputation as one of the most highly productive rural areas in NSW and a major service centre for a rich agricultural hinterland.

This publication uses a T84 Modular layout.
