Owner description: 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.

A bit shocked that two seniors had to pay $26 to see a natural resource. The Devil’s Marbles in the middle of Aust. and the Archer River near the Roadhouse on Cape York are free and magnificent.

I’d recommend this place in a heartbeat to anyone visiting the tablelands. Down-to-earth attraction with lots of nature (rocks, boulders, trees, creeks) and friendly rock wallabies. The lady mending the place is hospitable and helpful. I agree with some reviewers that some parts of the path could have been more well-marked. However, this is just a minor issue. We’re not the fit type, but managed to do the shorter circuit with ease. The owner at our holiday accommodation suggested that we visit this not-so-well-publicized place, and we’re glad we did!

This place was certainly a detour but the kids loved the place for the rock wallabies and the climbing of the gorge. Good way to spend a couple of hours to break up a journey.

A great little spot set in the natural environment. Could do with some infrastructure upgrades but for the fit it is a good walk amongst the granite boulders. Wear good closed shoes,
