Collecting, cleaning and inspecting more than 160 artefacts unearthed in a Maryborough park has resulted in recognition at the 2014 National Trust of Queensland Heritage Awards. 

Conserving Maryborough's cultural heritage

Converge, along with the Fraser Coast Regional Council, received a high commendation in the Governor's Heritage Award, which recognises achievement in local heritage projects.

Archaeological finds dating mostly from 1920s to 1930s

Among the finds were a variety of bottles, pottery, tableware and miscellaneous domestic items, dating mostly from 1920s to 1930s but also including some material from as early as the 1890s.

Research suggested the objects were related to drainage works and filling of low lying areas in the west of the park in the late 1930s as part of late depression type civil work.

Converge completed the project in June, which included a database of the collection, developed locally by the company's Fraser Coast office.

Council and Converge were recognised for their work to conserve Maryborough's cultural heritage, resulting in high commendations for both this project, and a second project which consisted of a series of eight conservation management plans for Council-owned places entered on the Queensland Heritage Register.
