Title Woodstock House, Maryborough
Alternative Title Queensland National Bank; Burrum Shire Council Chambers
Abstract/Summary Woodstock House was constructed as the Queensland National Bank in 1914-15. After the practice of the day, the ground floor held the banking chamber and offices and the upper a residence. Following various bank mergers the bank buildings became surplus to requirements and in 1966 the building was sold to the Burrum Shire Council for use as their council chambers. The Burrum Shire Council was formally decommissioned in 1976 and the building was sold into private ownership and is now used for office and other commercial tenancies.

Additional Notes Situated on the Mary River, Maryborough is one of Queensland’s oldest cities. It lies approximately 260km north of Brisbane, inland from Fraser Island. Settled in 1847 and proclaimed a City in 1905, Maryborough was the port for wool, timber and sugar industries, and the supply centre for the Gympie goldfields. Many of Australia’s free settlers entered the colony through the Port of Maryborough between 1859 and 1901. Maryborough's industrial base, although diversified today, still retains the original industries of engineering, sugar and timber. Maryborough has the state’s largest number of original Queenslanders, many lovingly restored to their former glory. Much of the city's character has been preserved in its classic buildings, mostly built of local timber in a range of sizes and designs.
