More information about Bond Store

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. You can sample a range of delicious regional ports and liqueurs in the authentic surrounds of the Bond Store. A small provedore on-site provides a range of regional produce and products for sale. Step back in time and experience the former Maryborough Bond Store and learn about Maryborough’s fascinating past.
