Getting there:

Route/Trail notes:

This is a circuit starting and ending in the camping area. There is also a midpoint entry if you want to only do half the walk. Going clockwise, you start immediately by crossing the creek, then entering the rainforest. Continuing on following the side of the creek before recrossing the creek and following the track along the other side of the creek back to the camp area. There is a small trail off to the left going down to another swimming spot.



Other References/Comments:

Camping permit required if staying over at Cedar Grove or Amamoor Creek (fees apply).

There are numerous walks in the area including Cedar Grove Hiking Trail, Amamoor Creek Hiking Trail, Amama Walk (Cascades) and Amamoor State Forest Lookout (Fire Tower).


Camped at Cedar Creek for a couple of days and this was an easy introduction to the various walks in the area. With the recent floods parts had been washed out making the river crossing difficult.

Some up and down on rocky ground. Light rainforest.

Nice morning walk before everyone in the campgrounds woke up. Found another spot to have a swim in the creek around half way along the track (which there is a shortcut to the campgrounds). If you're camping here you might as well go for the stroll.
