Endangered riparian rainforest lines the clear waters of Broadwater Creek, and open eucalypt forest dominates the visitor areas in Broadwater campground, 47 km west of Ingham and 16 km of unsealed road from the forest entrance. This is a cool and pleasant place for family camping, with a large grassy picnic area and plenty of wildlife, including the vulnerable rufous owl and the spectacular, but endangered, southern cassowary. Bring old sneakers if you want to take a dip – poisonous bullrout fish inhabit the creek. You need to treat or boil the water before use, and bring firewood. Check road conditions during the wet season (Dec–Apr), when roads may be closed temporarily, and drive carefully, as logging trucks also use access roads.
