Maryborough - Bristol Hill Tower and Lookout




The Pioneer Memorial Tower (1933) was built during the Great Depression largely of material from the old Maryborough Gaol. It is situated at the edge of the Bristol Hill Reserve and offers great views of the town. Bristol Hill (905 m above sea-level) is based upon and named after Bristol Reef which was mined for gold from the late 1850s. There are old tailings to the west of the tower.

Review:


Possibly worth a short visit. You can walk up the winding steps to get to the top of the tower where there are nice views of the surrounding bush area including the town.

There is also a Pioneer Cemetery memorial set in the bushland below the tower and some walks in the bush. The Bristol Hills Walking Track goes past this area and it is 700m to the Avoca Road Park while there is a 1700m Historic Circuit Walk.

Some more tourist information in the area would be a nice addition.
