So get your best heel clicking shoes out, find your prettiest umbrella, and head on down to Maryborough during the June/July school holidays for an action packed week at the Mary Poppins Festival!
Why is the Mary Poppins Festival held in the quaint town of Maryborough? It is the birthplace and home town of P. L. Travers the author of the beloved novels which were adapted to the classic Disney movie and then the award winning musical.
The riverside parks and heritage laneways of Maryborough are the ideal backdrop for the festival giving it an authentic and magical air. The celebration is comprised of markets, steam train rides, art sessions, jumping castles, food stalls, storytelling sessions, a Matinee and Gala movie night, kite making, concerts and much more.
