Archeological dig of old Maryborough starts in October
SECRETS that lay buried in Maryborough soils for up to 166 years could be revealed this year.
As part of Open House celebrations, an archeological dig at the original Maryborough site, located at the river end of Aldridge St, will take place thanks to a $9000 Federal Government grant.
Fraser Coast Deputy Mayor George Seymour said the site had huge archeological potential.
He said there has been little disturbance since it was abandoned in 1856.
