Settled in 1847, Maryborough is one of Queensland’s oldest cities and was one of the busiest immigration ports in Australia in the second half of the 1880s.
With such a rich history, the city offers many impressive hertiage experiences. The original port district is now a hertiage precinct with gloriously preserved colonial buildings, sensational riverside parks, outstanding museums, historic pubs, steam trains and river cruises.
Maryborough also has a unique connection to Mary Poppins as the birthplace of her creator, author Pamela Travers.
The city's Brogla Theatre is regarded as one of the best regional theatres in Australia, with a new program of national and international shows every month.
Art and culture is celebrated at Gatakers Artspace – a stunning hertiage listed gallery in Wharf Street at Portside which houses local and touring exhibitions.
