Portside Heritage Gateway

Maryborough, Fraser Coast Area

Portside Heritage Gateway - your first port of call. Settled way back in 1847, Maryborough was where more than 22,000 free settlers took their first steps on Australian soil. Relive those early years with a visit to the City's historic port area.

The Customs House Interpretive Centre (circa1900) reflects the history of Maryborough as a thriving river port in the early days of Queensland. Discover the history of the state's pioneering industries and explore the incredible "cabinet of curiosities",

Just a few doors away is the Bond Store Museum (circa1864) including collections celebrating the early history of Maryborough and one of the city's oldest buildings. It was part of the Customs complex to provide storage for goods that attracted a tax for Her Majesty's Customs Service.

Walk through the Bond Store, and you're stepping on history. The earthen floor and ancient handmade bricks in the original 1864 building downstairs still exist, as do many of the liquor barrels left over from that time.

The Portside Heritage Gateway Pass to give you entry to all three museums located in the Portside Precinct - Customs House Interpretive Centre, Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum and the Bond Store Museum.
