‪Australia’s only outbreak of the pneumonic plague was in Maryborough in 1905. This fountain, situated to the Lennox Street side of City Hall, is a memorial to the two Nurses Cecilia Bauer and Rose Wiles who selflessly volunteered to nurse victims of the plague. Whilst looking after their patients both nurses fell ill and died from the deadly disease.

At the time Maryborough was Queensland's largest port — a reception centre for wool, meat, timber and other rural products. A freighter from Hong Kong, where plague was rampant, was in the port of Maryborough about the time that a wharf worker named Richard O'Connell took home some sacking from the wharf, for his children to sleep on.

Subsequently, five of the seven O'Connell children, two nurses, and a neighbour died from the disease. Fortunately, there were no more cases but the ensuing fear, panic, and hysteria totally consumed the town, and a huge crowd gathered to witness the family’s house being burnt to the ground by Health officials.

Pneumonic plague is a severe lung infection caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. The difference between the forms of plague is the location of infection; in pneumonic plague the infection is in the lungs, in bubonic plague the lymph nodes, and in septicemic plague within the blood.

This memorial humbly remembers local history ... many people are not even aware that we experienced this plague in Australia and if you do a web search it's unlikely that this one will show if you just type the type of plague in for Australia. It is a very pretty water fountain...and worth walking around the Town Hall to visit.‬

‪This Fountain is on the quiet side of the town hall green ( lennox St ) if you can't find it pop in to the tourist information center which is at the Town hall they will point you in the right direction. What can You say when You find out the History about this little fountain It is dedicated to Two nurses who sacrificed there own lives to save a town from The Black Death ( Pneumonic Plague ). Maryborough was the only Australian city with a recorded outbreak. After we found out the History of this little fountain Just standing near it brought a tear to my eye . Just a place to stand and reflect on peoples bravery .‬
