Bond Store

Step back in time

Walk the earthen floors of this former store for her Majesty’s Customs Service and discover a time when opium was a legal import and the rum trade flourished.

The core of the building dates back to 1864 and still retains the original floors, handmade bricks and barrel rails. It provided secure storage for goods that attracted a tax including cigars, tobacco, rum, wine, spirits and opium.

Today the Bond Store has been reinvented as a store for regional produce and houses fascinating displays and artefacts documenting Maryborough's Portside history.

For a unique experience, book Tipples and Tales to listen to The Gauger's intriguing stories of the Bond Store's past as you sample regional ports, liqueurs and platters.
