Don't forget to get in early and book your accommodation.  There is not a great deal of options in Maryborough and traditionally the QB weekend is a busy time.

I have also included some accommodation options for you to consider.  They are all in close proximity to each other and the Lammy is a great spot for the socialising/drinks and dinning.

The Blue Shades Motel  (note this is also where we will be having the AMPRA meeting on Saturday night)
