London has stolen the gong after 2,237 people joined a pub crawl through the city earlier this month. The Londoners only beat Maryborough's June record breaking pub crawl by 41 people.
Maryborough Councillor Anne Nioa says the battle lines have now been drawn. "I think they have something like 1,500 pubs and 10 million people and they could only beat us by 41, so it is a bit funny really," she said.
Maryborough will attempt to reclaim the record on the Queen's birthday long weekend next year.
