Maryborough, I've been there.

Mary Poppins
Laurent and I went to Maryborough last year during the Mary Poppins week. We had great time there and we were gracefully hosted by Bob and Joyce. I'd like to thank them again for the great host.

Monique from Channel 7's Sunrise today had another trip to Maryborough, and there are some interesting clips.

Maryborough holds the Guinness World Record for the largest pub crawl. This year's pub crawl will be on (Sunday) 8th June, the Queen's Birthday long weekend, and Mary Poppins Festival will be on Sunday 6 July this year.

Here's the 7.30am video clip, featuring Mary Poppins' pram race and the time cannon.

And there's the 8.40am video clip:

H.264QuickTime 7To reduce the server strain and to speed up the loading, these video clips are encoded with state-of-the-art video codec H.264, which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rate. QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended for watching the video clips.

You can see more Maryborough photos in this gallery.

Maryborough is a nice place to be, except two important chain stores are missing from there. Gloria Jean's Coffees and Wendy's (ice cream). Just a (relatively) short drive to Harvey Bay, you can find a Wendy's outlet there, the one that gives very generous amount of ice cream. (Wendy's outlets are franchises, some outlets charge higher and gives less.)

(To Don: Unlike Boston, Maryborough does not snow. And I haven't been to the beautiful Boston.)

No. But good to see some familiar faces on TV.
