Wooroolin, South Burnett Area
The Wooroolin Wetland is located at the township of Wooroolin, 16 kilometers north of Kingaroy along the Bunya Highway. The walking trails can be accessed from the parking area beside the Grand Hotel, over the railway line and follow the signage. Alternatively you can access the walking trails via the bird hide by turning right into Sportsground Road from the Bunya Highway on the outskirts of Wooroolin.
A bird hide and two walking trails have been established for naturalists to fully appreciate resident and migratory fauna. Over 25 different birds have been sighted including nankeen kestrels, striated pardalotes and golden-headed cisticola.
Over two kilometers of endangered vegetation has been fenced to help restrict access and protect the local and regional species. Revegetation is taking place in this eucalypt woodland and particular attention is being paid to the endangered Queensland Blue Gum.
Wooroolin State School planted 80 native trees in 2003 and will continue with an annual tree-planting program. Nesting boxes have been provided as alternative habitats for sugar gliders and possums. Interpretive signage has been erected to promote project achievements, local information, wildlife and tracks.
