Mary Poppins Festival



Celebrate the Art of Storytelling!

Friday June 28 - Saturday July 6, 2019

in Maryborough, birthplace of Mary Poppins Author PL Travers


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.

This year’s festival presents a nine day program of storytelling for all ages through all art forms. From music concerts backstage and onstage at the Brolga to pop up performances in the Bond Store Basement.

Our artists share their stories through exhibitions and public art installations.  Walk the streets and search the rooftops for some very special new surprises as part of the Maryborough Story Trails experience.
