Tipples and Tales

Enjoy a Tipple and a Tale in the historic Bond Store.

The Gauger has a tale or two to tell... and he has a unique way of measuring the goods. Come and hear the Gauger's stories of the Bond Store's past and sample some regional ports, liqueurs and platters.

Tipples and Tales is a combination of storytelling with yarns about the Bond Store and its role in the thirsty days of the early settlement; and a tantalizing tasting experience of ports and liqueurs from Moffatdale Ridge and delicious platters. 

Look around the Bond Store and take in the displays which use sound and video to engage visitors in the region’s history and highlight the original use of the building. 

In the early days of the Queensland, the Port of Maryborough was very important. Originally nearly all the goods that built the city of Maryborough passed through this building.

In 1866 you would have seen barrels of liquor and crates and sacks of produce such as sugar that was exported from the wharf.
