Located in the heart of Victoria’s Goldfields region, Maryborough has much to offer the visitor – historic gold rush buildings, beautiful parks and gardens, antiques, art and food and wine.
...”railway station with a town attached”…
Mark Twain once described Maryborough as a “railway station with a town attached”. The historic railway station, which has one of the southern hemisphere’s longest platforms, still stands and is home to an antique emporium, art gallery, regional wine centre and restaurant.
Art, bushwalking or gold fossicking
For the art lover, a visit to the Central Goldfields Regional Art Gallery is a must. Housed in the old fire station, it specialises in contemporary exhibitions.
Enjoy the local bush with a walk in the Paddys Ranges State Park or go fossicking for gold.
The surrounding area is also home to a number of boutique wineries offering full flavoured reds. Fine foods are available throughout the region and Maryborough’s fine dining establishments offer a variety of cuisine to suit all tastes. There are also many cosy cafes, take-away restaurants and delightful bakeries.
Shopping and Major Events:
With both Coles and Kmart opening shortly ‘retail therapy’ in Maryborough must be experienced. Maryborough has many interesting retailers from the smaller to larger variety stores, pharmacies and supermarkets.
There are many high quality events held in the Central Goldfields Shire.
Make a return visit to the renowned Maryborough Highland Gathering in its 150th year held on the 1st and 2nd January or celebrate Australia Day at the newly developed Station Domain launch.
