Mary River Parklands

Parks and Gardens

The historic Port of Maryborough area has been transformed into a stunning public park complete with outstanding public art works. The Mary River Parklands forms part of the historic Portside Precinct. It plays an integral role in the City’s urban renewal plans, providing a naturally beautiful link between Queens Park, the multimillion dollar Brolga Theatre, the Wharf Street heritage precinct and the river.

The 500 square metres of landscaped parkland offers natural terracing, community forecourt, winding pathways, gardens, magnificent royal palms and shade trees of the same species found in nearby Queens Park. A new 23 metre long wharf, known as Queens Wharf, matches one of the original timber wharves that were scattered along the riverbank during Maryborough’s heyday as a thriving river port.
