Amamoor State Forest produces some of the finest hoop pine in Queensland. More than 120 bird species have been sighted in its riverine rainforests and plantations of hoop and bunya pines. Enjoy a drive through the forested valley to walk through the forest along trickling creeks and streams. From Amama day-use area, take the Platypus walk (300 metres return) to a viewing platform for a chance to see a platypus. The rainforest walk at Cedar Grove features huge red cedar and fig trees. Cedar Grove and Amamoor Creek camping areas have large flat sites. In August, the annual National Country Music Muster takes place here.
Children are welcome.
Some facilities for visitors with a disability are available.
Camping permits are required and fees apply. Book online at the Queensland government web site or by phone.
