Amamoor features dry eucalypt forests with riparian rainforests fringing Amamoor Creek. All three recreational areas are located beside the picturesque creek.
The creek provides important habitat for many animals including platypus, which are active during dusk and dawn busily forage for food, and several rare and endangered frogs.
There are excellent locations along the creek to birdwatch and, if you're lucky, spot platypus swimming in the creek.
The surrounding state forest produces some of the best plantation hoop pine in Queensland.
Help protect our natural resources by leaving no trace of your visit.
Take all your rubbish out of the park and dispose of it appropriately at a waste disposal facility on you route or when you get home. Reduce the rubbish you need to carry out by removing excess food packaging before you leave home.
Creeks near camping and picnic areas feed into the Mary River and on to domestic water supplies. Please keep them clean.
See Caring for parks and forests for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) manages the camping areas and associated walking tracks under the Forestry Act 1959. The majority of the forest in this area including the hoop and bunya pine plantations are managed by HQPlantations.
