Since 1881, Maryborough State High School has exemplified
excellence in education. Our school community is proud
to be a part of the outstanding 139-year commitment
to educating students, both in terms of academic
outcomes and their development as lifelong learners.
Today, Maryborough State High School offers a flexible
learning environment exemplified by our students
having opportunities to engage in a variety of academic,
sporting, cultural and community programs.
As a vibrant part of the World Heritage listed Fraser
Coast area, the town of Maryborough is steeped in
history, and just a short drive to Hervey Bay provides
the stepping off point to Fraser Island, the location of
some of the world’s best whale watching encounters.
Homestay* enables EQI students to truly experience Australia's famous lifestyle.
By living with an Australian host family international students become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment. International students often develop lasting friendships with their homestay families.
Standard Homestay fees have been set and these are listed on the EQI program fees page.
