There is an information sign, about Amamoor State Forest and this walk, in the day-use area.
To reach the start of the walk cross the main road with care. Read the sign at the walking track entrance to learn more about wild macadamia trees that grow in Amamoor’s rainforest. Some individual macadamia trees have name signs beside them.
