Wicklow County is a county (a cadastral division) in Queensland, Australia, located in the Wide Bay–Burnett region. On 7 March 1901, the Governor issued a proclamation legally dividing Queensland into counties under the Land Act 1897. Its schedule described Wicklow thus:

Bounded on the east by the county of Yarrol; on the south by the county of Newcastle; on the west by the eastern watershed of the Dawson River; and on the north by the south boundaries of Knockbreak Lease, Calrossie Resumption, Culcragie Lease, part of Culcragie Resumption, and by the north boundary of Eidsvold Resumption.
