    Beautiful park with lots of flowers and trees and a waterfall at one end that was really lovely. Worth a stroll through or picnic as there's plenty of shade.

    A small wildlife park, but worth a visit especially if you have young children. Able to feed the kangaroos, talkative parrots, lizards, snakes, birds.

    This museum is a must see. You’ll send hours walking through and exploring 3 levels of artefacts. There is so many things of interest. Apart from the war memorial in Canberra this is the best I’ve seen. The volunteers were amazing and informative. Thank you

    PL Travers (apparently not her name) the author of Mary Poppins was born in this building in 1899. The life size cast bronze statue on the footpath outside is a fitting tribute. But it’s not the only MP memorabilia in Maryborough. If you’re quick crossing the road you’ll get a photo of the MP crossing silhouette, green umbrella up and red umbrella folded. But don’t stand around in the middle of the road focusing because there is traffic.

    We will do this again and again and again, Tracy was the ultimate guide, informative, genuine, interested in us, passionate about the history of the area and quite clearly a lover of her job. Thank you for a great couple of hours.

    Thursday market in Maryborough in the middle of the town, a wonderful experience. We were both impressed with the size of the market and variety of the stalls. We were particularly interested in the fresh produce and because the stalls were just packing up we picked up a couple of bargains. This is a must do in this beautiful town.

    This statue is such a moving tribute to those who landed on those dreadful beaches. Everyone must be proud of him.

    Lovely and entertaining experience, great for young and old. A lot of interactive activities for kids and plenty of interesting information for adults. The grandkids loved searching for the story mice

    We just happened to visit on the day that the new 3 million dollar waterpark was officially being opened. Probably a bit of a cool time if the year but the children certainly didn’t seem to mind.
    The park is lovely with so many facilities and in such a pretty area. We had walked up from the wetland area and were astounded as to the numbers of birds. There were families feeding the ducks and geese, having a wonderful time.
    The park has playground equipment for the young and older age group days well as a swing for the disabled.
    There are picnic tables and bbqs and there are lots of great big shade trees which must be a bonus in the summer months.

    We are visiting Maryborough briefly but the park looks great despite the recent Mary River flooding twice in a few weeks! This memorial is lovely and evokes the memory of our long departed veterans of a brutal campaign in WW1.

    This place was one of the highlights of our trip. The roses were all out in bloom and we could have spent forever looking at them. It was truly a lovely way to start our morning. We met some of the volunteers who tend to the gardens and they were absolutely lovely.
