The Gillies Range is a section of the chain of summits south of Cairns that separate the Far North Queensland coastal plain from the interior Atherton Tableland. At the foot of the range is the town of Gordonvale.

A pass permits road access (The Gillies Highway, famous for its 200+ corners in 20 km of road) across the Gillies Range from the Goldsborough Valley near Gordonvale, to the Atherton Tableland. The Gillies Highway and range were named after William N Gillies, a former Premier of Queensland.
