2015 Immigration Celebration, Public Event, ALL Welcome
Each year, we will be celebrating 150 years and 140 years since the arrival of immigration vessels to Maryborough.
Next year is the turn of the Sophie and Golden Land voyages to Maryborough in 1865, and also, 140 years since the arrival of the Gauntlet, Great Queensland, Star Queen and Tim Whiffler that arrived in 1875. Date for next year’s celebration to be advised.
Our Immigration Celebration is an annual event. Find out if your ancestors swam or came by boat to the Port of Maryborough.
Descendants of passengers from these sailing ships are invited to this event. Also, descendants from other ship passengers are welcome to attend.
Please email us so we can include your name in our mailing lists.
You can also find us on Facebook where we will be downloading passenger lists for these ships.
