Wooroolin Wetlands

Last weekend our son from Brisbane came visiting and we went for a drive to the Wooroolin Wetlands. It is  about 16 km drive North of Kingaroy at the township of Wooroolin. It is clearly visible from the main road.. It is a non-tidal, inland, non-arid, seasonally flooded wetland. There was an indication of a walking trail but we couldn't find it

Over 28 different birds have been sighted here, 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. Nesting boxes have been provided as alternative habitats for sugar gliders and possums.
