There's a great walking track between the corner of Goldsmith/Kars Streets and Gladstone Street.

The walking track is a formed gravel path which runs straight through the bush from one side to the other, but there are multiple other tracks branching off further into Bristol Hill Reserve.

A short walk further through the reserve will bring you to the Bristol Hill Memorial Tower as well as the Pioneer Cemetery.

View from the top of the Bristol Hill Pioneer Memorial Tower

The Bristol Hill Pioneer Memorial Tower was built in 1933 during the Great Depression. It was based upon and named after Bristol Reef, which was mined from the late 1850's. It was constructed largely of material from the old Maryborough Gaol. 

The tower is located at the edge of Bristol Hill Reserve and offers amazing views of the town and surrounding bushland. Old tailings are visible to the west of the memorial tower.
