Maryborough is famously associated with Mary Poppins, and if you were a fan, your childhood memories will come alive when you walk down its historic streets. It’s where PL Travers was born, the very author of the sensational Mary Poppins book. Don’t miss out on the city walk, which is the best way to experience many of the impressive heritage buildings in town. There are many highlights, including the City Hall, a large building found at the end of the main street. It was built in American Colonial style back in 1908.
Another is the Royal hotel, which maintained its Royal Crest for more than 150 years because it was given the status of a hotel with royal patronage. In 2009, its hotel license was already cancelled though it’s still noteworthy because of its reputation as a fine hotel with excellent hospitality since 1856. Another highlight is the Maryborough Post Office, built in 1866 in an elegant design. It’s a reflection of the booming financial status of the town because of the Gympie gold rush. It’s also interesting to note that it’s the oldest post office in Queensland.
Maryborough is home to all these and more, so be sure to include it in your itinerary. Make sure you check out the range of accommodation options in town, including some hotels, motels, caravan parks, guesthouses, apartments and B&Bs.
