Fraser Coast Attractions - Action, Adventure, Heritage, Fun!
Customs House Interpretive Centre and Bond Store Museum
The centre reflects the history of Maryborough as a thriving river port in the early days of Queensland. The Federation style building, built in 1900, was Maryborough’s second Customs House. It remained a Customs House until 1988 and opened as an interpretive centre in 2001.
Inside you will discover the history of Maryborough’s pioneering industries and explore the incredible ‘cabinet of curiosities’, displays of artefacts from the Original Maryborough Town site and a room inspired by PL Travers (author of Mary Poppins).
Just a few doors away from the Interpretive Centre is one of the largest museum collections celebrating this early history and one of the city’s oldest buildings, the Bond Store Museum.
Walk through the Bond Store, and you’re stepping on history. The earthen floor and ancient handmade bricks in the original 1864 building downstairs still exist, as do many of the liquor barrels left over from that time.
