Maryborough - Cities, Towns and Localities

‘Heritage City’

Named after the wife of Governor Fitzroy, Maryborough was settled in 1847 on a bend in the Mary River and is one of Queensland oldest provincial cities. The city abounds with magnificent colonial architecture, fabulous gardens and stately public buildings reflecting the growth and vitality of the city. Historic items of interest include Customs House in the Wharf Street precinct, the Bond Store Museum and Brennan Geraghty’s Store a shop classified by the National Trust.

Sugar, timber and engineering are the main industries in the area today, alongside tourism. Fraser Island, Hervey Bay, Maryborough, and the Great Barrier Reef are part of the Fraser Coast. Located just 3 hours north of Brisbane, in the south eastern region of Queensland, it is one of Australia’s great holiday destinations.
