About Achievers Walk
Discover how ordinary Australians can achieve extraordinary things on this unique walking trail. Located in Maryborough’s Portside Heritage Precinct, the Achievers Walk takes you past a series of plaques mounted on the pavement in Richmond and Wharf streets which pay tribute to more than 80 Australians and former Maryborough residents.
From pioneers to scholars and Olympians, learn about the remarkable achievements of former residents like P.L Travers – author of Mary Poppins; Duncan Chapman – the first ANZAC to land at Gallipoli; and Hayden Kenny – the original Ironman.
The pavements are wide with curb cuts at all intersections. Richmond Street is flat while Wharf Street slopes down to the river. The plaques are easily read.
