Our Facilities

We occupy the entire ground floor of the lovingly restored building on the corner of Wharf and Richmond Streets in the heart of Maryborough. The institute offers very comfortable research facilities with air conditioning for your comfort, helpful advice and room to move.

Whilst in the area you can soak up the atmosphere of the early days in what was the hub of the developing town. The wharf street precinct is steeped in history, with the Bond Store Museum and Old Warehouse Gallery occupying one of the oldest buildings in the area. Opposite the institute is the old Custom House Hotel (now a restaurant) complete with "ghost stories".

Also walk through the Portside Precinct, view the excellent Colonial and Military Museum, or take a river cruise along the Mary River. MELSA Model trains run on the last Sunday of the month in Queens Park where you can listen to a brass band or pipe band on various Sundays. The steam locomotive, a replica of the MARY ANN, the first rail engine built by Walkers Ltd, also runs on the rail lines through the gardens on these Sundays and also Thursdays, which is Market Day in the centre of Maryborough."

No parking problems. All the records are on one level on the ground floor and easily accessed.
