Travel Directions

Travelling north on the M1 (Bruce Highway) from Brisbane, pass Ettamogah Pub (a leaning timber structure on your left just past the Caloundra turn-off) pass the Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Eumundi/Kenilworth turn-offs.

Continue north past the Cooroy turn-off, then the Imbil/Lake Borumba turn-off. Look for the "Sexie Coffie" billboard on your right. The next left turn-off is the Traveston Crossing Road, clearly signed indicating Amamoor, Kandanga, and Amamoor State Forest. Follow the Traveston Crossing Road to a bridge over the Traveston Creek, where the road becomes Meddleton Road. Follow Meddleton Road until you reach a cross-road. Go straight ahead into Blackgate Road and follow Blackgate to a Y Junction.

Take the left swing of the Y Junction into Kandanga/Amamoor Road. Amamoor Homestead B&B and Country Cottages is approximately 3 km along, the second Bed and Breakfast on Kandanga/Amamoor Road.

Things To Do

For the energetic bushwalker, climb the hill behind the Homestead for glorious panoramic views of the Valley and rainforest gullies. For the not-so-energetic, your hosts will be happy to 4WD you to the top to enjoy the vista.

Take an easy stroll through shady mango orchards during the season and handpick yourself some tree-ripened Bowen mangoes. Take a peek at our Photo Gallery and you will see pics of some of the bird and wildlife that you may encounter as you wander.

Picnic at Amamoor Creek State Forest Park, the rainforest area of Cedar Grove or Amama Park, where you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the platypus at play. Stroll along bushwalking tracks with sub-tropical vegetation and waterfalls. Take a leisurely drive along the Mary Valley Scenic Way and notice the diverse grazing and agricultural activities that abound, including pineapples, macadamias, mangoes, citrus, avocados and small crops.
