See art, history, and military Memorabilia in Queensland’s significant Heritage city.

Stories of loss, triumph, and unbreakable spirit from its captivating colonial past right up to modern times are dispersed throughout Maryborough via its heritage buildings, striking public art, statues, memorials, and museums.

Maryborough was Queensland’s industrial powerhouse in the final decade of the 19th century, producing naval ships, heavy castings for sugar mills and railway locomotives and rolling stock. It was also the centre of significant agriculture, including timber milling and sugar cane growing.

Bronze statues of military man Duncan Chapman and children’s favourite Mary Poppins illustrate the contrasts of Maryborough’s turbulent and enchanting history.
