Every Thursday morning from 7 am to 1 pm, the wonderful “supercalifragilisticexpialdocious” cotters style Maryborough Markets come to life. The markets are enjoyed by many locals and visitors in the central business district of the heritage city of Maryborough.
Located on the beautiful Fraser Coast in Queensland. Maryborough’s city centre undergoes a remarkable transformation into a colourful outdoor heritage bazaar. Wander around over 100 stalls with a fantastic array of farm-fresh produce and unique wares, original hand-made craft, homemade treats, artwork, jewellery, clothing, accessories, natural beauty products and gorgeous cut flowers.
Meet a cast of characters in historical dress, including the Town Crier, and hear the firing of the historic Time Cannon at 1 pm in Town Hall Green! Soak up the atmosphere of music and entertainers while you enjoy hot food stalls and find beautiful condiments and gourmet pantry items. Then, make a day of it in the city and join a guided Heritage Walking Tour from City Hall at 9 am or ride The Mary Ann, a replica steam engine nearby Queen’s Park. Maryborough has a unique link to the world’s most famous nanny, being the birthplace of Mary Poppins author Pamela Lyndon Travers. After enjoying the Markets, discover the magic of Mary Poppins by visiting The Story Bank, an interactive museum dedicated to everything Mary Poppins.
