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.

Stayed for 5 nights with family of young kids. Cabin was small but good enough for our needs. Balcony facing the bush was stunning. Close to towns so plenty to do for day trips. Kids loved the wallabies. Had flooding throughout so couldn't swim but still plenty to do. Looking forward to our next trip up.

The lovely Mareeba rural area has some interesting surprises, and the Granite Gorge Nature Park is one of them. We were impressed with the friendly welcome and advice from the park ranger ,then proceeded to have a friendly encounter with the wildlife. There are a number of walks here - we chose the "Orange" one and recommend it as being... More

We always have a fantastic time at Granite Gorge Nature park. We have 3 teenagers and enjoy the walks, swimming and especially feeding and patting the wallabies. Very relaxing place to come and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.

We had fantastic days at the Gorge. It is a very familiar and not too touristy place. Coleen and her family and friends are doing a great Job. We really recommend to visit them :)

With all the wildlife tours we've done now, our kids don't ever want to go to a zoo, but after days of sighting wildlife at a distance, it was fun to get to feed this rock wallaby up close! The giant lizard & chickens were pretty interesting, too!

Fantastic little walk, nice landscape, but the best are these cute "wild, but very accustomed to humans" rock wallabies, and birds.... don t miss this place, especially if you are travelling with kids, one of the best places we ve been to (added all together and if you ask the children 10+12 afterwards) in 5 weeks Australia

Reception was very friendly and helpful. We loved feeding the rock wallabies and going for a hike over the beautiful gorge. A refreshing swim in the weir is a must!

The environment is beautiful, but we were a bit shocked when we saw the wallabies. Some of them don't look healthy at all.
