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.

The geology of this gorge is amazing but we came to see rock wallabies. They are wild but are used to being fed so extremely tame. Not sure how I feel about feeding wild animals but they are cute. The scenery here is amazing

A great experience for young teenagers and adults alike. We all enjoyed the rock climbing and feeding the wallabies. An ice block at the end was vet refreshing.
