  • We were recommended to visit here as being an 'off-the-beaten-track' attraction... and we're so glad we did. Seeing, and feeding, the rock wallabies was a highlight and the lady who ran the place was ...  more »
  • We camped overnight at Granite Gorge. There was plenty of room for camping, the grounds were maintained and there are beautiful non powered sites by the creek. The Granite boulder walks are good fun, but the grade 4 part is for adventurous and reasonably fit people only. Plenty of time wildlife, I had a rock wallaby sit on my lap at one point. Amazing value for money compared to other nature Parks that I have been to.
  • What an incredible experience with all the wild life. Wild rock wallabies to feed and pat, chickens, peacocks, pigs and a few more. The grounds are vast and if you can live without a power outlet, the unpowered sites along the gorge are truly beautiful. The public areas are extremely basic and most certainly need a revamp. It's all clean, but there is a lack of fridges and hot plates and the usual things, especially for a camp ground of that size. There is no WiFi but mobile coverage (Optus, others I do not know) is excellent.
  • Fabulous place to go; there are so many cute wallabies.
  • Nice nature walk. Well laid out and defined
  • Great campspot, lots of grassy areas situated under pine trees and next to a freshwater creek. Good amenities
