Many of Maryborough’s suburbs are undefined by fixed boundaries, although Tinana and Granville, across the Mary River from Maryborough, can be readily identified. They have their own entries. Maryborough’s other suburbs are as follows.

Aubinville, northwest of the city centre, where the airport is located. There are heritage-listed World War II air force facilities on the west of the airfield.

Baddow, on the north side of the Mary River five km west of the city centre was the place of the first European settlement. It was found to be unsuitable for river traffic, causing the township to be moved downstream. Edgar Aldridge (1818-88), an original settler, built Baddow House at 366 Queen Street in 1883 and named the home after his birthplace, Little Baddow, in Essex, England.

There are two riverside parks, one the first-settlement site, and the Riverside Christian College (1983), a P-12 school with campus and distance education students.

Fairfield, three km northwest of the city centre, is the site of Maryborough’s second high school, Aldridge (1973). Beyond the high school, there is a rifle range.

Maryborough West adjoins the north side of Baddow. It has the Maryborough cemetery, the showground and the Wide Bay and Maryborough TAFE.
