Event:
Maryborough is opening its doors Literally
With the Brisbane Open House running for 3 years now, the concept of opening and sharing some of the heritage sites seemed a good way to show off some of the history of the city. This year they opened the doors of over 51 buildings; some heritage, some new builds, to a great success.

On Saturday, October 27, 2012 Maryborough is going to give this a go and open 20 of their heritage buildings and residences to the public. They will be doing this for free.

Maryborough is 30 kilometres away from Hervey Bay and was the home of P.L. Travers, the author of the Mary Poppins books. In 1847 it was a busy port of entry for immigrants into Queensland. Wool, meat and timber were bought and sold.

There is a list of participating buildings and residences on the website if you are interested in finding out which buildings you can see. You can then plan your day around the area. Go to www.frasercoast.gov.au and look under Community information on the right hand side of the page. This will lead you to the Maryborough Open House information.

There is a list of the day's itinerary that will begin at 9:00am and go to 9:00pm. This will include a wine and cheese at Gataker's Artspace. The website give you all the information you will need including information about guided and self guided tours.

There is plenty of accommodation in the area if you choose to make a weekend of it. But you may want to book soon as they are hoping for lots of attendance.

Step through the doors of Maryborough and step back in time.
