Cedar Grove, Amamoor State Forest, is a small grassed area set among cedar and bunya pines. A large pool in the bend of Amamoor creek just down from the campsite provides a great spot for a swim. Several walking tracks are available including a short walk to a viewing platform where you may be lucky enough to spot platypus, a 1km Rainforest walk or the Cedar Grove trail for the more experienced hiker.
