  • Of seeing a variety of native animals and birds caged much to small for them is your thing , then this is the place for you .. Highly unimpressed with the lack of respect and regard for these...  more »
  • A group of us came for a 2-night camping adventure in August 2020 and it was a perfect weekend away. It was my first time at Granite Gorge however the others had all camped here before several times....  more »

  • I have been visiting here off and on this year. The first time I went on the hike it was really hard and I was confused. Since then I know every nook and cranny of the long hike and I can take it running. When my friends have Japanese students they ask me to take them there. It's a really good place to learn there personality's and become friends. But I do only recommend it for the the Japanese guys 😋 Usually when we get back home they ask me how in the world I do ( being a girl and all)🙃lol
  • Great spot for camping, good facilities and very helpful staff. Electric and water, clean kitchens, bbq and toilet blocks. Great showers all at a fair $18 pp with power. Quite basic layout which was fine for us but this is the end of the dry season so it's not very green yet. Entry to the Gorge is included and feeding the wild Wallabies is an absolute treat. Swimming in the dammed river is a gift in the 33'c we hit in November.
