Wonders abound at nature park
ESCAPE the holiday bustle and take in all the astounding nature right at your doorstep at Granite Gorge Nature Park.
From bushwalking to bird watching, rock hopping and fishing, the nature park has something for everyone.
Located only 12km from Mareeba, you don’t have to travel the Earth to find paradise.
Owners Keith and Coleen Bryde said the shady sites and extensive facilities at Granite Gorge Nature Park made having a break easy.
“You can relax in one of the lovely self-contained cabins or get back to nature with some bush camping and be amazed with the wonderful surrounds,” Mrs Bryde said.
“We also have safari tents for people who would like to have some little luxuries while still having the ambience of camping in the great outdoors.”
Granite Gorge Nature Park offers a range of activities that are ideal for families during the school holidays.
“The holidays is the perfect time for families to enjoy nature together,” Mrs Bryde said.
“A great activity is walking the amazing trails on a kilometre long rocky landscape. The area is filled with weird boulders that look like animals, with some the size of huge buildings.
“Families, especially children, enjoy the walk and it gives them a chance to let their imaginations run wild.
“An excellent way to cool down after the walk is to take a dip in the Granite Creek weir. It provides superb crocodile-free swimming and canoeing.”
