THE date has been set for the next Maryborough Open House.

The event was a big success last month, with more than 11,000 visits to all the historical buildings lodged in the Heritage City.

Cultural services councillor George Seymour said the event was booked in for next year.

"It will be on October 26, which will tie in with Sunday in the Park in Maryborough and will not clash with the Torbanlea Races."

Cr Seymour said the organising committee would look at increasing the number of bus and walking tours at the 2013 event after they proved extremely popular.

"It has the potential to become one of the signature events on the Fraser Coast and I'm very excited to be a part of it," he said.
