Maryborough City Hall

Maryborough, Fraser Coast Area

Designed by Brisbane architects Hall and Dods in American colonial style, Maryborough City Hall was erected in 1908 to replace the original timber Town Hall which stood on the opposite side of Kent Street. The exterior was built with locally made Meredith bricks and red cedar was used extensively throughout the interior. In 1935 the clock tower, curtain tower and stage were added.

The auditorium features a semi-circular barrel-vault ceiling. Elaborate classical detail adorns the stage, columns and the proscenium and features Maryborough's city emblem - the Crimson Bottlebrush. The Hall was restored and refurbished in early 1990.

Call in to the Visitor Information Centre at City Hall, enjoy a free daily guided heritage walking tour or see the firing of the time cannon each Thursday on the City Hall Green.
