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.

Beautiful location, amazing birdlife, fantastic facilities, very courteous and friendly hosts. We would recommend this country retreat to anyone.
Very occasionally you find a place that far exceeds your expectations and Amamoor Homestead is such a place. Everything is perfect – the situation, the tranquil and relaxing ambience, wonderful food and great hosts. We have enjoyed our stay in this beautiful place and I’m sure we will return for a longer stay next time.
