Wongi Waterholes



.A string of beautiful waterholes fringed by paperbarks and surrounded by eucalypt forest and exotic pine plantations make Wongi State Forest and reserve a special place to visit.

Wongi is reputedly an Aboriginal word meaning “deep water”. The waterholes are a golden-brown colour from tannins leached from the paperbarks. Reflections can often be seen in the still waters. Hoop pine rainforest, open eucalypt forest, open woodland with a heath understorey, and exotic pine plantations grow in Wongi. The National Bicentennial Trail passes through the forest.

The Wongi Waterholes are 25km north-west of Maryborough in SE Qld. Head 12.5km towards Childers on the Bruce Highway then turn left at the signpost and drive 10km into the picnic and camping areas along a gravel road.
