Maryborough Central State Girls School had its origins in the mixed Maryborough State School which opened in 1862. About 1874, the boys and the girls were separated into two schools, the boys' school becoming Maryborough Central State Boys' School and the girls and infants combining to become Maryborough Central State Girls' and Infants' School . The new school acquired the number 249.

On 15 December 1877, the combined girls' and infants' school closed and was replaced by separate schools for infants and girls. The new Maryborough Central State Girls' School opened 21 January 1878 and retained the school number of 249.

On 29 July 1932, the Maryborough Central Boys' School and the Maryborough Central Girls' School both closed and the boys and girls once again joined to become the Maryborough Central State School (Number 72)
