Maryborough, Queensland

Maryborough, inland Queensland. A delightful town with lots of history and lovely old buildings. The boatbuilding industry on the local Mary river has all but disappeared, but it has a brand new town hall and an active art community.

Maryborough is the birthplace of the author of Mary Poppins, Pamela Lyndon Travers, although the town was already named Maryborough before that event. The town hosts the annual Mary Poppins Festival.
