Mary Poppins Statue

Landmarks and Buildings

Located on the corner of Kent and Richmond streets a statue of Mary Poppins stands proudly as recognition of Maryborough’s link with the famous nanny. PL Travers was born Helen Lyndon Goff in Maryborough in 1899. Mary Poppins has universal appeal. The novels have been translated into more than a dozen languages and Supercalifragilistic is a word known to millions.

Maryborough’s statue of Mary Poppins and the Proud Marys display located in the Maryborough City Hall Visitor Information Centre is Australia’s only significant tribute to the literary skills of P.L.Travers and the amazing worldwide success of the series of Mary Poppins novels.

This bronze statue of the much-loved nanny of the Mary Poppins series of books was erected through community involvement and donations in September 2005. Celebrations of the City’s links to PL Travers happen each year in September at the Mary Poppins Festival in the Park.
