Amamoor Creek camping area
A rare find for pet owners, this camp is dog friendly. Take care though, as the creek is home to platypus and a variety of frogs. The flat, grassy campsites are suitable for tents and caravans, and surrounded by majestic ironbark and blue gum forest. Toilets and showers are wheelchair-accessible, although the shower is just a cubicle. You will need to use your own shower attachment. The campsite is closed to the public for a week each Aug during the annual Country Music Muster. Bring a gas/fuel stove or your own firewood, as collecting wood in the forest is illegal. Tap water needs to be boiled or treated before drinking.

This campsite is located in Amamoor State Forest
Known for its riverine rainforests, hoop and bunya pine plantations and scenic walking tracks, Amamoor State Forest is 180 km north of Brisbane. Popular walks include a short path (with wheelchair access) to a platypus-viewing platform, a 1 km return rainforest walk and, for experienced hikers, the 4.6 km (4 hr) Cedar Grove trail. The forest is the traditional home of the Gubbi Gubbi, Wakka Wakka, Jinibara and Kabi Kabi peoples. The traditional owners maintain strong cultural links and strive to protect the land by sharing their culture. Advance bookings are required for all camping.
