Maitland Loops

The Maitland square, is approximately 1 km in width, and having a grid layout, it can be looped around to visit all streets and locations. For a grid layout there are 4 basic trips, depending on which of the four corners start from and which direction then zigzag back and forth along to get to the diagonally opposite corner. Having chosen an outward trip, a second trip can be selected to return to point of origin.

In the above diagrams trip 1 can be combined with trip 3 to create a full loop of Maitland, alternatively can combine trip 2 with trip 4. Starting with trip 2 and finishing with trip 4, is likely most suitable for those staying at the caravan park.

A spreadsheet can be downloaded here: TravelStringDiagram. The spreadsheet allows varying the size of the square and the size of the grid. It plots an XY-chart of the of the 4 trips, for the defined grid, each of the trips can be switched on/off. {eg. The spreadsheet can be used for any grid: village, workplace}

From the spreadsheet, the distance for one trip is approximately 6km, for a complete loop the distance is 12 km. Assuming a travel speed of 5km/h for walking, then the travel time is approximately 2.4 hours. The time for a single trip 1.2 hours, and time for a simple return (L-Shaped) is 24 minutes, or single trip with quick return 1.6 hours.

Or put another way its roughly a 3 hour trip to explore the Maitland town square.  As to what can be found the directory provides a listing of organisations by street.
