Retire in Mayborough?

Looking to retire in Mayborough?

Whether its striking art, military history or heritage building - there is plenty to explore in Maryborough on the Fraser Coast. Maryborough is located around 250km north of Brisbane and just 20 minutes from the idyllic seaside town of Hervey Bay, giving you access to Fraser Island, great fishing facilities and whale watching between July and November.

In the portside precinct is Australia's finest military museum outside of Canberra and across the street a tippler tells tales of tasting liquor at the old Bond Store. Art lovers can explore the Mural Trail, launched in 2015 and now with 30 murals and installations, with more to come. In the space of three years, it has become one of Australia's most notable mural cities. Start your journey in Kent Street at the Maryborough Visitor Information Centre in City Hall and learn about the baking of the historic Peace Cake and how the trail began.

When you’re ready to travel or welcome guests, Maryborough is serviced by the Queensland Rail Tilt Train and the Hervey Bay Airport for commercial flights. You’re also close to nearby towns like the famed Bundaberg (home of the Bundaberg Rum distillery), and the historic villages of Childers, Gin Gin and Seventeen Seventy.

With so much to see and do, and with some of the world’s best attractions at your doorstep, make Chelsea Gardens in Maryborough your new home.
