Maryborough Railway Station


The town boasts plenty of impressive Victorian-era buildings, but Maryborough Railway Station leaves them all for dead. Built in 1892, the inordinately large station comes complete with a clock tower. Still very much operational, today it houses the Railway Cafe & Tracks Bar and the Museum of Australian History & Art Gallery.
