The stately Queenslander homes of Maryborough.

The beautifully restored Queenslander style homes throughout Maryborough is well worth a drive around the local streets.
Each house is unique and I had no difficulty going up and down the streets looking at them.I have taken a lot of photos and if you are interested in these type of houses you will no doubt have your camera ready.
There is a lot of history in Maryborough,the Mary River is very unique as it is the only river in QLD that flows from south to north and is home to platypus and some of Australia's rarest species.See my things to do entry if you are interested in discovering the hidden surprises this area.

Another Queenslander home.

I was so thrilled to see these Queenslanders being restored--it saddened me to learn that many had been demolished for modern housing.
These are Maryborough's charm.

Queenslander for sale

Not many of these Queenslander's are for sale so I believe it will sold quickly.

    How funny (I am meaning myself) that I have never thought of our gorgeous old Queenslanders as a tourist atraction. They sure are beautiful in Maryborough.
