Won­ders abound at na­ture park

Tablelands Advertiser - - LIFE­STYLE -

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.”
