Description

Apex Park is the site of the first public hospital in Kingaroy and was developed by the Apex Club in the mid 1960's. The large trees that remain today are the plantings from the hospital grounds. A resident of the area donated the steam engine in the centre of the park.

There is a memorial in the park in the memory of Matron Norma McDiarmid (1915-1944) erected by Kingaroy Past and Present Nurses Association.

A walking track through the native bush takes you from the park to the lookout on Coral Street. From the viewing platform you will find panoramic views of Kingaroy and its surroundings including the majestic peanut silos, Tarong Power Station and Coolabunia Hill (home to Sir Joh and Lady Florence Bjelke-Petersen). Looking towards the southwest you are rewarded with expansive views of the Bunya Mountains, Queenslands second oldest National Park established in 1908.

There is a large playground for the children to enjoy while you sit under the large shade trees and relax. Bring your lunch and enjoy a pleasant afternoon in the peaceful surroundings of this shady park.

All play equipment is on rubber based soft fall material to reduce impact. A wood barbecue under the sheltered picnic area provides visitors with an opportunity to have a barbecue lunch whether it is in rain, hail or shine. There are amenities available.
