This photo was taken at the stunning Granite Gorge Nature Park 12 km west of the town of Mareeba on the Queensland Atherton Tablelands. The nature park, which features campsites and cabins is also open to day visitors for a nominal fee. Huge boulders festoon the landscape and, in this location are covered with Mareeba unadorned rock wallabies. These cute little guys are wild, and it was an amazing experience for the boys. The slightly anxious look on my face is because my one and only phobia is of rats. The wallabies were a little too rat like for my complete comfort. The park’s hostess warmly welcomed the boys and, as well as these marsupial inhabitants the kids were introduced to a number of local reptiles.
