Jimna State Forest’s landscape is a rich green mosaic of sustainable pine forest plantations and contrasting native forests. The area has a colourful history of goldmining, with all the 'gold rush' fever that entailed. The last flurry of mining activity in the 1940s yielded 2.8kg of gold. Jimna township developed largely around the timber industry. Steam-driven sawmills processed timber at Jimna and nearby Sunday Creek. Yabba Creek is a great place for birdwatching, exploring the creek and discovering its aquatic wildlife. Watch the water quietly around dusk and dawn to spot platypus. During the day, eastern grey kangaroos and lace monitors are often seen in the camping area. After dark possums are active in the trees as they forage for food.
The camp site is located approximately 140km north of Brisbane, inland from the Sunshine Coast and 45km north of Kilcoy.
