East Maitland Bowling Club
Located just off the New England Highway on Banks Street at East Maitland, East Maitland Bowling Club is an easy 10 minute drive from Maitland, 25 minute drive from Newcastle, or 40 minute drive from the Hunter Valley vineyards.
This contemporary club offers something for everyone including two fantastic dining options, comfortable lounge areas, entertainment and activities, and of course, three fabulous Bowling Greens.
Enjoy a wide range of meal options at the award winning Billabongs Family Buffet Restaurant, or relax with a fresh coffee, snack or light meal at Griffins Cafe 147. Both are open 7 days, with bookings strongly advised for Billabongs, and membership discounts available - conditions apply.
Spend some quality time with friends and family in the Main Lounge and take a look at our fascinating Les Darcy Memorabilia Collection - known as "The Maitland Wonder". Try your luck at a weekly raffle or enjoy the FREE live music every Friday and Saturday night, or late Sunday afternoon. The kids are welcome too with a play room to keep them entertained!
Riley’s Sports Bar broadcasts all major live sports as well as UFC, all NRL games, and other one-off events. It also offers full TAB facilities, Keno, a weekly pool comp, and an outdoor smokers lounge. Hot snacks can be purchased from $2.00 and a discounted cocktail is available very Friday and Saturday night.
If you have a wedding, conference or event, look no further than the ABIA award winning Scarborough Function Centre, which can host an event up to 160 people (for a seated meal). The Club’s dedicated function and wedding coordinators will be there to help every step of the way.
