Adjinbilly Cascades are reached by a short 2 minute walk from the Ruby campfire area. It is a beautiful place, deserving to be called the ‘heart’ of Adjinbilly. It is a ‘must’ to visit early in your stay, with the small cascading waterfalls and enveloping rainforest creating a unique, secluded setting. You can walk up to the falls (beware of slippery rocks), get wet or sit and enjoy the special feeling of just being there.
There is a table and chairs where you can share a meal (perhaps a candlelight dinner for a special occasion).
This is an ungraded track mostly following old logging tracks along the creek. This beautiful walk has a myriad of highlights, from the many cascades and the beautiful views of the creek to the amazing strangler figs and the magnificent epiphytes high in the trees.
It is a walk with plenty of ‘ups and downs’, and you might get your feet wet as you cross the creek. There are seats at selected beauty spots – wonderful places where you can reflect and soak up the ambience or take special photographs.
Adjoining the Mooloolah River, the Mooloolah River National Park protects valuable remnants of coastal lowland habitat, rainforest, open eucalypt woodlands, melaleuca forests, wallum banksia woodlands, scribbly gum open forests, wallum heath and sedgelands.
Follow the pleasant Amama creek up to a set of cascades then up to Diamondfield Lookout.
This walk starts across the road from the main stage at the top of the hill at the muster site, and winds up hill through thick bush allowing no views. Crossing a couple of dry creeks,(even though there has been rain here)until it hits a foresty road and follows it up another hill, before you start the down hill run. A lot of bunya pine and little else. the track is well defined.
Amphitheatre—8.6km return (3–4 hours) Class 3
Hidden inside the walls of the gorge is a 60m deep chamber, gouged from the rock by running water. Resounding acoustics add to the awe-inspiring atmosphere within the Amphitheatre.
Mostly flat, very easy walking tracks, well signposted. Lots of local wildlife information along the walk and quiet a nice view out over the old quarry and Brisbane River.
