Location

Wongi State Forest is located 25km north-west of Maryborough.

What's special

A string of beautiful waterholes, fringed by paperbarks and rushes, are a feature of Wongi State Forest. Tannins leached from the paperbarks stain the water in the waterholes a golden-brown colour. Reflections can often be seen in the still waters.

Forest communities include hoop pine dominated rainforest, open eucalypt forest, and open woodland with a heath understorey. Exotic pine plantations are also grown here. In the heart of the forest is Lenthalls Dam, the water supply for Fraser Coast Regional Council.
