Amamoor

At first glance, Amamoor, just a 15 minute drive outside Gympie, seems like nothing more than a tiny village that comes alive just once a year in August for the Country Music Muster.

However, locals say that there is more to Amamoor than first meets the eye. On the Mary Valley Highway, this tiny town is adjacent to Amamoor State Forest and Forest Reserve that protect precious forests that are home to more than 120 species of birds.

What's more, riverine rainforest grows along Amamoor Creek and White Cedar, Red Cedar, Hoop Pine and Bunya are in the rainforest. The forest also contains Hoop and Bunya Pine plantations. Locals say that it is possible to find Platypus in Amamoor Creek at dawn or dusk.

Alternatively, take the road to Cooke's Knob fire tower for a fabulous view over the forests and coastal plains. However, remember this is state forestry so a permit is required to drive to the tower. For campers, Cedar Grove has grassy sites on the banks of Amamoor Creek that are popular all year round. Take your own firewood or use supplied firewood sparingly. Pay your fees on-site. The campsite has cold showers, toilets, barbecues, water and a public phone.
