Amamoor Creek Hiking Trail

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 forestry road and follows it up another hill, before you start the down hill run. A lot of Bunya Pine and little else, with the track is well defined.
