Kingaroy Apex Park and Lookout

Kingaroy, South Burnett Area

A peaceful rest stop, Apex Park was the site of the first public hospital in Kingaroy and was developed by the Apex Club in the mid 1960s. The large trees you see today are the original 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 recognition of the great contribution of Matron Norma McDiarmid (1915-1944) erected by Kingaroy Past and Present Nurses Association.

A walking track through native bush takes you to the lookout on Coral Street. The viewing platform affords panoramic vistas of Kingaroy and surrounds including the iconic peanut silos, Tarong Power Station and Coolabunia Hill (home to the late Joh and Lady Florence Bjelke-Petersen). Towards the south-west, are expansive views of the Bunya Mountains.

There is a large playground and towering shade trees perfect for relaxing under. Bring a picnic and enjoy a pleasant afternoon in the peaceful surroundings.

All play equipment is on rubber-based soft fall material designed to reduce impact. There is a wood barbecue under the sheltered picnic area and toilet amenities available.
