Held each Thursday, the Maryborough Markets bring the city centre to life with over 120 stalls of fresh farm produce, handmade crafts, clothes, jewellery accessories and lots more. Popular amongst both locals and tourists, these weekly markets are a must-visit for newcomers on the Fraser Coast, and can be reached within minutes from our Hervey Bay holiday accommodation!
You can find the Maryborough Markets at Adelaide and Ellena Street in central Maryborough, where you’ll instantly be greeted by a lively atmosphere which lasts from morning to afternoon. As well as the markets - which also bring a wide selection of natural beauty products, homemade treats, artworks and flowers - the Maryborough Markets feature a cast of friendly characters in historical dress. Come along to meet the Town Crier, who appears after the firing of the historic time cannon at 1pm. There’s also live entertainment for all the family, as well as a broad choice of food stalls selling a variety of tasty hot food, drinks and snacks.
After enjoying the markets, take time to explore Maryborough which is rich with history, scenic parks and quaint streets lined with cafes, gift shops and more. If you’re feeling perky, join in a guided tour of the city with the Heritage Walk Tour to discover Maryborough’s fascinating history, which includes being the birthplace of the iconic fictional character, Mary Poppins.
