Overview
More
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.

Beautiful scenery. Feeding the wallabies was fun. Would have loved to do the harder walk and see the dinosaur footprints however the rocks were slippery and there were no handles or anything to hold and pull yourself up, like they had elsewhere (and it wasn't...More

We loved it here!! Admission tickets were about $12 to enter the park and we were given a bag of wallaby food. We probably saw around 10-15 wallabies at any given time, but there were many more hiding in the rocks. We had come here...More

Easy drive from port douglas to this quirky national park. Lots of wild wallabies to feed with a sprinkling of peacocks to avoid. Follow the coloured route markers embedded in the large granite boulders for a cracking scramble/walk. Families with young children and teens will...More

Camped the night for $28 (unp) which includes access to swimming holes, gorge walks, plentiful native & farm animals, some which you can feed/pat/hold. Neat amenities with great hot showers, excellent camp kitchen and fire pits on sites too. Pet friendly.

I would never have known this place if my friends in Mareeba had not told me about it. They knew that I love nature and animals and that I wanted an up-close contact with them, so they suggested that we visit this lovely Nature Park...More

What an amazing place to stop for a couple of days. There is camping, rock pool swimming and walking trails over the granite rocks with trinkling of water over rocks from underground water holes. Saw scrub turkeys, rock wallabies and peacocks

After a briefing from the receptionist, you follow a well marked path to stop after a few steps feeding the wallabies. Lots of fun and plenty of pictures taken of the wallabies, especially those carrying a baby. If you feel like walking on, you get...More
