Amamoor State Forest offers nice quiet unpowered camp sites with toilets available. This is the only camping area in Amamoor that allows you to bring your dog with you. The state forest is about 15km out from Amamoor and is usually accessible with all vehicles providing that the rain has been kind. The Amamoor State Forest is also home for the annual Gympie Music Muster.
The platypus may still be there but the veiwing platform has been washed away.
Explore lush rainforest with buttressed trees, vines, ferns and mossy rocks. Along the rainforest-lined creek, look for the teardrop-shaped birds' nests which overhang the creek. A small waterfall is a refreshing stop.
Cedar Grove Rainorest Walk
A large swimming hole and sub-tropical rainforest featuring large red cedars, figs and a piccabeen palm grove are found here. Along the creek are tall forest oaks.
Cedar Grove Hiking Trail
A hiking trail branches off the rainforest walk and through open forest and hoop pine plantations. The track crosses Amamoor Creek and returns to the camping area.
Amamoor Creek Hiking Trail
The track meanders through open, eucalypt forest and through forest with an interesting mix of rainforest plants that grow in drier areas on poor quality soils.
The Amamoor lookout is located on Dagun-Amamoor Rd and is about 1km from the town of Amamoor.
Head out to the Amamoor State Forest and have some fun with your trail bike or 4WD.
