Cedar Creek Road, near Samford
Brisbane 4207, QLD
Sitting directly below Mt Glorious, Cedar Creek was named in the early days of colonisation for the red cedar that was logged in the area, though as a result, very few of these impressive trees remain.
The vast natural swimming hole here connects with smaller rock pools and cool mountain streams. Dense surrounds make bushwalking difficult , but you can follow the creek, hop across rocks and climb trees if you’re keen to explore.
The swimming hole is best after rain; September to March is the wet season. There are barbeque facilities at nearby Andy Williams Park once you’ve worked up an appetite.
