Description

Soak up living history in the vintage city of Maryborough where you will find glorious colonial buildings, outstanding museums, quirky heritage tours and a unique connection to Mary Poppins. One of Queensland's oldest cities, Maryborough was one of Australia's main immigration points for thousands of new settlers who flocked to the new colony from the mid-1800s to Federation.

The remnants of its fascinating past remain in its architecture, with stately colonial buildings lovingly reinvented as restaurants, cafés, shops and museums. Against this stunning backdrop, you can travel back in time to relive Australia's early history with a visit to the city's original port precinct, Portside. A Portside Heritage Gateway Pass includes entry into three leading museums, a sound and light show and cellar door port tasting among rum barrels left over from the 1860s.

While at Portside, soak up the river views while dining al fresco in heritage surrounds; or stroll through beautiful Queens Park, one of Australia's first botanic gardens. For those who like their history served with a large side order of fun, Maryborough offers quirky tours and trails, steam train rides, costumed characters and even a time cannon fired on city streets.

Jump into the magical world of Mary Poppins with a visit to the birthplace of author Pamela Travers, and a host of "practically perfect" experiences including a statue, Magical Mary Trail and a guided tour with a 'Poppins" character. Delve into the dark side on a delightfully eerie guided Ghost Tour of the city's many haunted historic sites on the last weekend of the month.

Every Monday to Saturday, hear 19th century costumed guides spin incredible tales of sailors, new settlers and slave traders that were the backbone of this old port city on a free Heritage City Walking Tour.

A visit to Maryborough is not complete without searching for "treasure" in its many antique and collectable stores. Another must is its famous Thursday inner city market. Lovers of art and culture are not forgotten with public art on show in parks, streets and laneways as well as galleries, including Maryborough's Gatakers Artspace.
