Cedar Creek Rock Pools
Spend an afternoon with the bellbirds and kookaburras at the rock pools of Cedar Creek, just ten minute's drive past Samford Village.
This is a quiet place to explore nature, rock hop, and maybe even spot a fresh water eel or platypus. The creek itself is surrounded by shady trees and there are a few locations to choose from for a picnic or for swimming on a hot summer afternoon, especially after rain.
Andy Williams Park has picnic tables and free gas barbecues overlooking the creek as well as toilets and a car parking area. The natural rock pools here are a pleasant spot to cool off and there are lots of miniature waterfalls for children to splash around in.
Nearby Halls Road Crossing is another waterhole suitable for paddling on a hot day. Here children will spend hours collecting rocks, building dams, and looking for tadpoles.
