    "There is a tradition of storytelling here in Maryborough, our people are artisans of this ancient craft. All of the yarns, the tall tales and true, we keep within our Story Bank. For these words are our bond with this place; and the landscape, the town around us, is latticed with stories, a web of words, of people, of place.

    When we listen closely in the quiet places of this old city, in the landscape that still contains the traces of everything that has ever transpired upon it, we might just hear the echoes of their voices, see the result of their labours, and sense the character of the many people who have all played their part in the Maryborough story.

    They are the living memories, who know that the story never ends – that there is magic to be found, with every step we take, into the new stories of the future. They may have lived “once upon a time”, but the place is still here."

    Ian Brown, writer and storyteller.
