Maryborough Military & Colonial Museum
Located in the Wharf Street Precinct, as part of Portside and opposite the Bond Store, the Maryborough Military & Colonial Museum provides a testament to not only those heroes who fought in distant lands to ensure our way of life and prosperity, but also those courageous and determined people who pioneered and progressed the Maryborough area for nearly two centuries.
