Kenilworth is a town and district positioned near the headwaters of the Mary River, 37 km west of Mount Coolum. It was named after the heritage-listed Kenilworth homestead (1865) and pastoral property, part of the Obi Obi pastoral run dating from 1850s. The naming of the property possibly came from Sir Walter Scott's popular novel, Kenilworth.
