Harvey's Marbles

Summary

World class bouldering! Quality granite boulders some as big as houses.

Description

Boulders in amongst bushland ranging in sizes and grades a must do in Townsville! An excellent guide by Steve Baskerville and Madoc Sheehan is available.

Access issues

Stay well away from the rifle shooting range (http://www.tmrc.com.au/). This is private property and potentially extremely dangerous.

Approach

Follow Harvey’s road out of town, past Willows shopping center, once you drive up the range take you first left and follow it until the road ends at the army gate. Park well away from the gate then head up the small embankment, left of the gate then follow paths to areas.

Ethic

This is private land and we are very lucky to have permission to access it please follow some simple rules:

  • Keep to the walking trails
  • Take all rubbish with you
  • Try to leave as much of the moss growing on the rocks as possible
