Maryville is a small suburban town located in the local government area of the City of Newcastle in the state of New South Wales. The town’s name was taken from Mary Hannell, who was the wife of the Newcastle’s first mayor, James Hannell. In the 1840s, settlers arrived to the suburb, which was followed by residential and industrial development between the late 1800s into the early 1900s. Today, Maryville is part of the Maryville-Wickham region, which is a residential and industrial community. Tourists who plan to spend time and holiday vacations in Maryville may visit several landmarks in the suburb and from neighbouring towns. Some of the major features in the area include the Wickham Park, Hogue Park and the Tree of Knowledge.
