Maryborough, Queensland is the birthplace of Mary Poppins author P. L Travers whose beloved novels were brilliantly adapted for the popular Disney movie and the award winning musical.
Maryborough celebrates its connection to Mary Poppins in many ways, one of which is the creation of the ‘Cherry Tree Lane Little Street Library’.
The annual Mary Poppins Festival is believed to be first in the world to celebrate Mary Poppins and the success of her creator, PL Travers. Maryborough’s riverside parks and heritage streetscapes provide a perfect setting for the festival with a range of other magical Mary experiences guaranteed to delight both young and old.
