Heritage

There are a number of heritage places across the Fraser Coast that tell the rich history of the region.

Ancient fish traps, shell middens and scar trees are evidence of the Butchulla people’s connection to country and the diverse architecture throughout the city of Maryborough provides a tangible link to the prosperity that flowed into the region from the Gympie Gold Rush and the commerce and migrants moving through the port.

Hinterland areas like Brooweena, Bauple and Torbanlea each have their own unique histories which are brought to life in the buildings and places of the past.
