Details

Hours: 10am - 4pm

The Mary Poppins Festival is a 10-day program of storytelling for all ages through all art forms. From music concerts backstage and onstage at the Brolga Theatre to pop performances in the Bond Store Basement.

Maryborough is a town steeped in history. Our heritage streetscapes and original wharf precinct practically hum with the stories that they hold! We pride ourselves as artisans of storytelling – sharing our stories through art and finding imaginative and creative ways to keep them alive. They connect us to our place and inspire us to dream of our future.
