Queens Park Waterfall

Maryborough, Fraser Coast Area
Free Entry
Enjoy the popular spot for picnics, the Queens Park Waterfall. The waterfall area of Maryborough's Queens Park was originally a quarry, which was later converted into a pond, that is regularly home to several ducks swimming on its surface or even catching some sun on the edges.

Wongi State Forest

Duckinwilla, Fraser Coast Area
Free Entry
Immerse yourself in a landscape of fragrant pine plantations and eucalypt forests surrounding a string of paperbark-lined waterholes. A photographer's dream, the tannins from the paperbarks have coloured the waterholes a golden-brown, creating striking reflections.

Mary River

Maryborough, Fraser Coast Area
Free Entry
The Mary River has been known by many names, with the Aborigines calling the river Booie, Moonaboola, Numabulla or Mooraboocoola. It was named the Wide Bay River until September 1848, when Governor Fitzroy renamed the river in honour of his wife, Lady Mary Fitzroy.

Maryborough

Maryborough, Fraser Coast Area
Maryborough tells the tales of a captivating colonial past. Stories of loss, triumph and spirit spread throughout the town in its heritage buildings, striking public art, statues and memorials. A short stroll through heritage-listed Queens Park leads to Cheery Tree Lane and a statue of Mary Poppins perched beside the 135-year-old bank building where her creator, Pamela Lyndon Travers, was born in 1889.
