Maryborough Tours

The city’s unique character is best discovered through Maryborough Tours, which takes in more than 100 historical buildings and homes, historical sites and points of interest. Absorb the atmosphere of Maryborough, step back into history, and enjoy a day on your own air-conditioned verandah! The personal driver guides are chosen for their ability to make your day enjoyable and the aim is for you to leave Maryborough with a memorable experience you will treasure for years.
Situated on the Mary River, Maryborough was first settled in 1847 and is one of Queensland’s oldest cities. Many of Australia’s free settlers entered the colony through the Port of Maryborough between 1859 and 1901. Maryborough captures history in its beautifully restored buildings and houses and has arguably the state’s best display of homes from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Its historic homes and high standard of preserved memorabilia and museums have earned Maryborough the title of Queensland’s Heritage City. Maryborough has the state’s largest number of original Queenslanders, many lovingly restored to their former glory.
