  • I have lived here for a few months very great quiet place, good cleaners, would recommend better water for showering, other then that great place
  • Well marked walking trails with heaps of wild life. Very beautiful.
  • Well marked walking path, wild tame tree kangaroos to feed and beautiful landscapes
  • 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.
  • Worth the detour. We fed rock wallabies, saw a snake and some impressive scenery.
