Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens

Maryborough, Fraser Coast Area

The Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens was the site of Maryborough's second official cemetery, which closed in 1873. As the town expanded the cemetery was deemed a public health risk, and by 1907, moves were made to remove headstones and remains to the new cemetery. In 1921, the land was converted to a public park, and now is full of beautiful rose gardens.

In recent years, brand new interpretive signage has also been installed at the gardens. This allows you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings while soaking up some of Maryborough's great history.
