Queens Park & Portside Parklands, Maryborough
The author of Mary Poppins, Pamela L Travers, was born in the Queensland city of Maryborough and we celebrate our unique link to the iconic nanny with the world's only Mary Poppins Festival - a week long explosion of colour, art, culture and "practically perfect" fun for everyone.
The Festival has grown from a morning of entertainment and games to an annual signature event for the Fraser Coast. The supercalifrafilistic family fun day includes colourful Grand Parade, the hilarious Great Nanny and Chimney Sweep Challenges as well as childnren's workshops, Mary Poppins Characters, traditional games, rides, steam trains, entertainment and much more.
