Walk with Wild Macadamias

AMS members and the public are invited to a Community Open Day on Saturday 30 July to celebrate the opening of the Walk with Wild Macadamias. 

The Walk is an exciting, new initiative of the Macadamia Conservation Trust (MCT) and Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service to help people experience macadamia trees growing in their natural environment. Amamoor is a treasure trove of wild macadamias – home to 75% of the wild Macadamia integrifolia trees on the Macadamia Conservation Trust database.

Located at Amama Day Use Area, Amamoor, members of the Macadamia Conservation Trust will be available from 10am – 3pm to offer visitors guided walks. Amama includes several walks as well as a picnic area and wood-fired BBQs.

Opening day: Saturday 30 July

Guided walk with MCT member: 10am – 3pm

Getting there: The Walk is easily accessible from the Bruce Highway. Take Exit 253 (between Cooroy and Gympie) and follow signs to Amamoor. Amama is 6km past Amamoor Village. 

For more information on the Walk, visit the MCT website

For questions regarding the Open Day, please contact MCT Executive Officer Denise Bond on denise.bond@macadamias.org
