Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The unusual, the quirky and eclectic are amongst 7000 items of military and colonial memorabilia, which form displays of exceptional quality at the Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum.

The museum houses a VC awarded to Lieutenant (later Major) Herbert James, 4th Battalion, Worcestershire Regiment for gallantry at Gully Ravine, Cape Helles, Gallipoli on June 28 and July 3, 1915. It is one of only 39 VC’s for the Gallipoli campaign and the only one in Australia outside the Australian War Memorial.

The museum has two of the most historically significant medal groups to Australian soldiers for the Vietnam War – 1964 to 1973.

The Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum provides a testament to not only those heroes who fought in distant lands to ensure their way of life and prosperity, but also those courageous and determined people who pioneered and progressed the Maryborough area for almost two centuries.
