Comprising of the Waterford Living, Harvest, Sophia Waters and Chisholm Gardens, Chisholm has been growing steadily since the original development which was named “Chisholm” by Maitland City Council in 2007. A staggering 5,000 housing lots were announced to be released in 2011 fulling the growth we see today and providing housing for an estimated 15,000 additional people in the area.
A Catholic Primary and High School have been opened in the suburb and public schooling is available in neighbouring Thornton, along with a choice of day care options. Adventure playgrounds, general playgrounds, the annual garden competition and extensive landscaping throughout the suburb, really help make the area feel welcoming and ready for any family to call home.
The Traditional Owners and Custodians of the Maitland area are the Wonnarua people.
