Maryborough Port Procedures and Information for Shipping

Aerial view of the Port of Maryborough along the Mary River.

The Maryborough pilotage area is situated between K’gari (formerly Fraser Island) and the mainland and encompasses the waterway known as the Great Sandy Strait.

The area is a temperate/tropical transition zone and as a result has species and habitats that are reflective of both climates. The area has large sheltered bays and vast beaches and the ideal sailing conditions and wide variety of marine species and habitats make it a popular location for recreational boating.
