The Mareeba rock-wallaby (Petrogale mareeba) is a species of rock-wallaby found in northeastern Queensland, Australia. It is a member of a group of seven very closely related species which also include the Cape York rock-wallaby (P. coenensis), the unadorned rock-wallaby (P. inornata) and the allied rock-wallaby (P. assimilis).

The Mareeba rock-wallaby is found in the highlands west of Cairns from around Mount Garnet to the Mitchell River and Mount Carbine, and inland to Mungana.[3]
