Maryborough (152.700E 25.533S) is a port on the Mary River on the east coast of Australia. Historically, the town was a significant rail center and sugar growing area and the growth of the railway led to significant industrial development. This was aided by coal mining in the nearby Howard and Torbalnea mines. The population was around 14,000 during the war years. The Walkers Limited shipyard was located here and constructed Bathurst-class minesweepers.
