At Granite Gorge visitors have a fantastic opportunity to get close with the wild rock wallabies in their natural habitat. You can hand feed them macropod pellets which we have available. The Mareeba unadorned rock wallabies (Petrogale inornata, Mareeba race) are rare and endangered and only seen up close here.The wallabies are unique to this area of Mareeba. They are known to be on the top of a couple of mountain ranges but this is the only place they can be seen up close and fed in the wild. Possums, 5 types of gliders, Frilled necked and other lizards, 2 types of quolls, turtles and echidnas inhabit the gorge and park area. On winter nights dingo howls can be heard way down the gorge.

Great spot. Worthwhile doing the hard yakka over the rocks and boulders but well worth it. Great views. Nice camping ground and friendly staff. Would recommend a visit.

Our Nav man had a bit of trouble finding this place about 12km out of Mareeba but as soon as we got there we knew it was worth the effort. Stunning countryside. "free range" chickens, ducks and turkeys added to the atmosphere. Great walks, incredible views and sunsets. Best bit was the friendly little wallabies.

What a fab place! Spectacular scenery. This place has wallabies everywhere, they are very friendly but have sharp paws? Claws? There is a bit of climbing over enormous boulders but they have made it easy where possible. Take water! Wear proper shoes for ease. Follow the signs from Mareeba although there are not many, just keep going!

Okay it's an outback park wth large granite boulders! Why five stars?..... Because it's the best adventure park in the area! And brilliant value thrown in too only $12 for grown ups and $6 for kids! To start you need to spend a few dollars on rock wallaby food and proceed to the wallaby rock where you will be met... More

This is a must see and must stay - a bucket list item! The property is privately owned and there is a fee for day visitors. The camping ground is huge, with plenty of space among the trees. There are fire pits if you want to use them as quite a few in tents did. We had our van parked... More

We had no expectations when we decided to visit on a day trip from Port Douglas, but had a great time at this location. The staff are great and guided us on the walks available which were extremely well marked. We walked over huge granite boulders with a lovely stream and weir. The rock wallabies were everywhere and not too... More

With so much to see in the tablelands we found our visit very disappointing. Rock wallabies great to see but thought the entry fee expensive. As for the walk just granite rocks

Our Australian hosts took us to feed the "wild" wallabies and climb the rock formations. There were kids in plastic kayaks in the small lake that was next to the campground. It looked like a great place to make family camping memories. Be aware that this is not a stairs and handrail type walk. Wear good walking shoes. One really... More
