Published on 31 January 2019


Central Goldfields Shire Council today launched the Maryborough and Surrounds Official Visitor Guide and 2019 Central Goldfields Art Gallery Exhibition Program.

The new Visitor Guide is the Central Goldfields Shire’s most significant tourism publication, featuring editorial to showcase this unique and diverse region of Maryborough and surrounds.

The Visitor Guide also showcases our regions highlights through events and festivals, things to see and do, arts, culture and heritage, food and wine, retail, accommodation, and liveability.

25,000 copies have been printed for distribution to visitor centres across the state to help encourage visitors to the Central Goldfields Shire.

The 2019 Art Gallery Exhibition Program highlights eight unique and inspiring exhibitions that the Central Goldfields Art Gallery will host in 2019.


Some of these exhibitions include works from renowned artist Deborah Halpern and Indigenous display Ngardang Girri Kalat Mini (Mother Aunty Sister Daughter) by local Indigenous artist Georgia MacGuire. This will be the first exhibition of its kind in Australia.


Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said he expects the Art Gallery to have one of its most successful years yet.


“With exhibitions of this calibre, I won’t be surprised if the Central Goldfields Art Gallery experiences its best attendance in its long history.


“I am very excited about the upcoming exhibitions and I invite locals and visitors alike to explore our incredible Art Gallery and be inspired.”
