A short walk featuring shaded rainforest, wild macadamia trees and a scenic creek.

Rainforest areas here provide one of the largest remaining natural habitats for Bauple nut Macadamia integrifolia—the ancestor of commercial macadamia nut trees.

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.

The Macadamia walk is part of the Fig tree circuit—turn back before the creek crossing, unless you also want to complete the Fig tree circuit.
