What is our best job?
DONNING an elegant, old fashioned frock and chatting merrily to market visitors, Judy Anderson looks like she fell from the pages of a historical drama.
The Maryborough woman lovingly doubles as both Mary Heritage and the town crier when the usual personalities Ken Ashford and Carmel Murdoch are absent.
In 2005, when the World Town Crier Championships came to Maryborough, another Mary was needed and talented Judy came to the rescue.
"It's not often you can get a job where you can dress up, wander around, talk to people and enjoy yourself," she said.
The characters are well known in the heritage city and Judy said their purpose wasn't only to fire the famous cannon but to promote Maryborough to the world.
"To let people know what a beautiful place we have here, because it's bypassed quite a lot by people wanting to go to Hervey Bay to see the whales," she said.
"I think it's nice to encourage people to come here and see our wonderful buildings and the nice people," Ms Anderson said.
