MARYBOROUGH

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.

Marlborough’s Anglican Church is a magnificent testament too very an era of ambitious construction. The bell tower alone boasts 60,000 bricks and the walls two feet thick.

Maryborough is reprsended with all of the main denominations

 

 

The Anglican church houses the flags used in the Boar and 1st World Wars and are fragile exhibits in the church.

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.

In keeping with era of Marlborough’s earlier development quite a number of hotels continue to do business. Many with heritage listings.

The Maryborough War Memorial is located at the Queens Gardens.

Allow plenty of time to enjoy this great ‘city’ where like Gympie earlier there is lots of civic pride on display.
