  • Experience this geological wonderland. The privately owned Gorge offers visitors an awesome geological wonder. Huge granite boulders form the watercourse through which crystal clear, refreshingly cool water cascades creating a myriad of pools and mini waterfalls. Add to this the Mareeba Rock Wallabies and the well thought out walking tracks and you have a special place. I am not normally one that supports paying to see natural splendour, but on this occasion it is totally worth the entrance fee, especially if you plan a picnic and a swim!!!
  • Good spot to come with the kids. We started out by feeding the Wallabies at Wallaby rock which was good fun. We then headed past the weir and down into the gorge. There's two loops - one short and one long. The shorter one is about 3/4 hour and would be easy for any moderately fit person. The longer one requires a good bit of scrambling and rock hopping so requires fairly good mobility. It's hot and dry on the rock, so take ware and wear good shoes. Great views down the valley as you go. A bit expensive at $12 but that does include the Wallaby feed.
  • Fantastic little getaway. My family loved the wallabies and possums.The rock walks are amazing. We had campfire at night. We stayed three nights in a little cabin. It was perfect. Thank you.
  • They have problems with eftpos machines but we had a great time .A lot of birds and othet wild life present. Great amenities and great for kids
  • Great for the whole family. Good clean facilities. Affordable. Adventures for young and old.
