About Mary River Parklands

The historic Port of Maryborough area has been transformed into a stunning public park complete with outstanding public art works. The Mary River Parklands forms part of the historic Portside Precinct. It plays an integral role in the City’s urban renewal plans, providing a naturally beautiful link between Queens Park, the multimillion dollar Brolga Theatre, the Wharf Street heritage precinct and the river.

The 500 square metres of landscaped parkland offers natural terracing, community forecourt, winding pathways, gardens, magnificent royal palms and shade trees of the same species found in nearby Queens Park. A new 23 metre long wharf, known as Queens Wharf, matches one of the original timber wharves that were scattered along the riverbank during Maryborough’s heyday as a thriving river port.

Accessibility Information

The park can be accessed from Wharf Street, the pathway from Queens Park or the ramp beside the Bond Store. The park has a ramped public jetty. The gangway down to the floating jetty is wide and has a gentle slope. The pontoon at the bottom is wide. At the top of the jetty is an accessible toilet facility. The park has the Macalister Station, which is the station for the steam locomotive Mary Ann that operates on Thursday mornings. Next to the station is a large viewing platform over the Mary River. The platform has level access from the pathway. Behind the platform is a picnic area with BBQs and accessible picnic tables.
