Heritage preservation sets a benchmark at Maryborough. Maryborough is a town to absolute delight in and the main street, churches, museums, hotels and numerous turn of the century council and business buildings are in very good hands. What a delight.
Maryborough, a city located on the Mary River in South East Queensland, was founded in 1847, was proclaimed a municipality in 1861, and became a city in 1905. During the 1800s, the city was a major port of entry to immigrants arriving in Queensland from all parts of the world. Over time the town has been a service town for many industries including gold mining, wool, timber, and sugar.
Maryborough is the birthplace of P.L.Travers, author of the Mary Poppins books.
The Military Museum is a credit to Maryborough. The museum is a class act in itself, and the detail of the displays a credit to the curators. This museum is a must visit and allow time to absorb the on offer. The Museum area is being developed into the artistic heart of the city.
Allow plenty of time to enjoy this great ‘city’ where like Gympie earlier there is lots of civic pride on display.
