Designed by Brisbane architects Hall and Dods in American colonial style, Maryborough City Hall was erected in 1908 to replace the original timber Town Hall which stood on the opposite side of Kent Street. The exterior was built with locally made Meredith bricks and red cedar was used extensively throughout the interior. In 1935 the clock tower, curtain tower and stage were added.
The auditorium features a semi-circular barrel-vault ceiling. Elaborate classical detail adorns the stage, columns and the proscenium and features Maryborough's city emblem - the Crimson Bottlebrush. The Hall was restored and refurbished in early 1990.
Call in to the Visitor Information Centre, enjoy a free daily guided heritage walking tour or see the firing of the time cannon each Thursday on the City Hall Green.
Children are welcome to visit the hall and spend time on the attached green, where 10 Mary Poppins Characters are etched onto brick plinths. The children can take a copy with them simply by placing a piece of paper over the etching and rubbing with a pencil.
The halls main entrance has a ramp. For access to the upper levels the hall has been fitted with an elevator for wheelchair access.
In front of City Hall is a replica small cannon. The original, found on Marbiak Island in the Torres Strait was presented to the town as a Christmas gift in 1877. Cast in 1750 for the Dutch East India Company, it is now located in the Bond Store Port of Maryborough Museum in Wharf Street. The Time Cannon is fired on the City Hall Green every Thursday at 1.00 p.m. by the Town Crier and Mary Heritage.
Public Transport can be accessed with the bus stop being right out the front.
