  • I have very mixed feelings about this place. I couldn't wait to see the rare Mareeba Rock Wallabies but left disheartened at their overall health. I know these are a wild mob on private property...

  • A gorgeous gorge, well worth the small fee per person. We did the extended trek, only 90 minutes total with some grade 4 scrambling over and sliding down rocks. Good shoes and free hands a must.
  • Superb setting. Fascinated by the hollow sounding boulders. Would like to see non native pink flowering plants removed from site asap before they spread. Was dismayed to see caged animals in reception, especially the cockatoos. No need. However, the water was delicious, so cool for swimming. Bird life abundant. The campsite looked very natural with plenty of water views
  • We came across the Granite gorge only by seeing the sign on the roadside . We absolutely loved feeding the Little Rock wallabies. We completed both the yellow and red walks ! Good walking shoes recommended! Absolutely loved this adventure . Worth the $13 each and $ 2 for pellets to feed wallabies 😊
  • Lots of wonderful animals and bursting bushland to see fantastic views from the rocks paths are unique to say the least they are for the adventurous type not a easy walk. Not suitable for people with disabilities or have trouble climbing. Family fun for camping and other animals to enjoy and feed the wallabies full facilities available, for day trips or camping trips.
  • Beautiful place a little off the beaten track with very friendly owner. If you love to pet a few rock wallabies, reptiles or have a little interaction with some friendly wildlife, the place for you.
