Maryborough Queensland

Our fourth son was doing Airforce Cadets down on the Sunshine Coast and wanted to continue for the rest of the year while we were up here in Bundaberg. But due to staff issues the Bundaberg section closed down. So every Thursday night we made the 2 hour trip to Maryborough Queensland.

While Cameron was off with Airforce Cadets David and I was able to have dinner together.  Kyle was able to have a “Sleep over” with his Grandparents and we were all exhausted come Friday morning.

But gee do I love the town of Maryborough. Actually I could easily live there, mind you they don’t have any great food choices {Like Eat Street Markets in Brisbane} so I don’t think our family could settle there for very long!

While we were working out what to have for dinner {the first time we drove down there} we had a good look at the different town attractions.

EVEN THOUGH ITS FUZZY I LOVE THE OLD BUILDINGS

Sorry the picture is so fuzzy….But gee I so love the buildings of Maryborough Queensland – that there is their Post Office – what a Historical Town.

We even went back in on a Saturday and spent the day looking around – Cameron had his end of Year March Out Parade. And we checked out the Bond Store, along with the Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum, which had so much to look at that we couldn’t see it all!
