Bristol Hill overlooks the central Victorian town of Maryborough and is the site of the town’s Pioneers’ Memorial. Built during the early 1930’s as a tribute to the area’s founders, and to provide much needed work for the unemployed during the depression. These days it serves mostly as a lookout over Maryborough for visitors to the town, or a great vantage point to watch the sunset.
