Maryborough is located around 160 km north-west of Melbourne via the Calder and Pyrenees Highways. Originally a goldmine township it is now the home to over 8,000 people.
Attractions include The Railway Station made famous by Mark Twain’s comment ‘a railway station with a town attached’ which now houses the Antique Emporium, Worsley Cottage the Midlands Historical Society, Central Goldfields Art Gallery, the Maryborough Flour Mill Gallery and Phillips Gardens.
Both Lake Victoria and the Goldfields Reservoir are great areas to visit for fishing, boating or a walk nearby. For those wanting a shopping spree Maryborough is abundant with specialty shops including, gifts, antiques and clothing.
Not to be confused with Maryborough in Queensland where you will need a lot less clothing and a bit more sunscreen.
