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.

Not having been here before, this is a great place for some gentle but challenging fun with the kids. To be greeted by 'friendly' guinea pigs, snakes and lizards that the kids could hold, followed by the walk around the well marked rocks, feeding wallabies...More

Stayed in a cabin which was amazing. Looking out on to nature you could sit on the back verandah. The Potrero wallabies are so friendly. You can buy food to feed them they eat right out of your hand. Ducks. Chooks. Peacock as well. All...More

My partner and I enjoyed a two day getaway here. The safari tents they offer are a good compromise between full blown camping and having a cabin, the bed was very comfortable and all necessary linens (including an extra heavy blanket) were included. The tent...More

It's hard to explain but we were a little put off by the owner of this place. We didn't have enough time to do the longer walk so opted for the short one. Some beautiful scenery anyway but we spent most of our time feeding...More

A little put off by the owner's oddly abrupt demeanour, we pressed on & entered the park. Some visitors have complained about the $12 entry fee (per adult), but at the end of the day, the owners of the property have to recover their insurance...More
