Description

Mount Wooroolin lookout is located just over four kilometres west of Kingaroy along Haly Street; the Kingaroy Shire Council developed it in 1988 as a bicentennial project. There is a grassed area available for picnics with tables and wood barbecues. Visitors are advised to take care while ascending or descending the narrow sealed road to the top; it is not suitable for cars towing caravans or trailers.

The elevated viewing platform offers 360 degree panoramic views of the surrounding countryside: Coolabunia Hill, home to Kingaroy's most famous family, Sir Joh and Lady Florence Bjelke-Petersen, the Bunya Mountains, Queensland's second oldest National Park and Tarong Power Station, which generates approximately one fifth of Queensland's power. To the northwest is Gordonbrook Dam, the source of Kingaroy's water supply; the dam was built in 1941 to supply water to the Royal Australian Air Force training school based in Kingaroy during World War II.

The ramp to the viewing platform is smooth for disabled access but care needs to be taken, as it is quite steep. The nature reserve is 160 acres of endangered eucalypt woodland and dry vine forest. Bird watchers can be rewarded with sightings of Regent Bower Birds, Black Breasted Button Quail and Eastern Shrike-tit.
