Driving Directions

25km north-west of Maryborough. Proceed to waypoint on the Bruce Highway 15km north of Maryborough. Turn west at the signpost and continue along Kellogum Forestry Road for 10km to the picnic and camping areas. (Gravel road.) Waypoint is last reliable mobile phone reception area.

In the Wongi State Forest Recreational Area you can camp or picnic under the shady eucalypt trees. Cool off in a waterhole in summer.
Wongi camping area has sites to suit families, groups, caravans, tents and motorhomes. Picnic tables, toilets, cold showers and tank water are provided. Take a fuel stove. Boil the water for five minutes before drinking. Dogs are allowed on leashes.

A string of beautiful waterholes fringed by paperbarks and rushes and surrounded by eucalypt forest and exotic pine plantations make Wongi State Forest and Forest Reserve special places to visit. Lake Lenthall, the water supply for Fraser Coast Regional Council, is in the heart of the 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.

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.

Camp or picnic under the shady eucalypt trees. Cool off by the waterhole in summer. For your safety, never jump or dive into the waterholes. Supervise children closely as the water is deep. No fishing.

Two picnic areas, with tables, are provided beside the waterholes. Fires are not permitted. Follow Warrah Road until you reach the signposted entry to the day-use and camping area.
