Talbot Maryborough


01 day(s)

Escape to the countryside to discover the freshest produce, friendliest locals and most fascinating gold rush history in Victoria's Central Goldfields towns of Talbot and Maryborough. This fully accessible itinerary is suitable for people of all abilities, and would be perfect for a day out or perhaps stay overnight to make the most of a weekend away.

The third Sunday of every month sees the streets of Talbot transformed into a fresh produce market that puts their more well-known city counterparts to shame. A short drive from Talbot you'll arrive at the regional hub of Maryborough. Known for its grand railway station, the streets of Maryborough are paved with gold... or at least were paved off the back of the Victorian gold-rush of the 1850s. Today you can still see the riches that flowed through this friendly country town with iconic buildings of McLandress Square and around High and Nolan streets providing a charm of days gone by.

Day : Talbot & Maryborough

On the third Sunday of every month the streets of Talbot are transformed into a fantastic farmer's market. 

This afternoon explore the township of Maryborough to discover rich architecture that was paid for by the Victorian gold rush. Discover the story of the historic Maryborough Railway Station and decide for yourself if this grand building was destined for Flinders Street in Melbourne or Maryborough Queensland. The debate still continues, although the locals will tell you this elaborate railway building is right at home here in the Central Goldfields.
