Mt Wooroolin Lookout was developed
by Kingaroy Shire Council in 1988 as a Bicenntennial project. The
mountain is a declared nature reserve and both the lookout and its
immediate surroundings are maintained by Kingaroy Shire Council.
Mt Wooroolin's lookout is an
elevated viewing platform that offers striking panoramic views across
Kingaroy and the areas leading towards Kumbia and the Bunya Mountains in
the east (the platform can be accessed by disabled people).
The adjoining parklands at
the lookout have limited picnic facilities. These include two covered
picnic tables, two uncovered picnic tables (shaded by trees), 2 wood-fired
BBQs and 2 garbage bins. There is no water available at the Lookout's picnic
grounds, nor are there any toilet amenities.

is sealed but is narrow and quite steep (especially the last
kilometre to the summit). This makes it unsuitable for caravans or anyone
towing a trailer.
Because of the steepness and
narrowness of the road, visitors should take care to drive slowly
when ascending or descending Mt Wooroolin. While not a very busy road, it's
certainly possible that you'll meet someone traveling the opposite way on
any ascent or decent.
If you're looking for a picnic
location with more amenities, Memorial Park (which you'll pass on
the way to Mt Wooroolin) may be more suitable.
