Fitzroy Crossing, set on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River, is the gateway to Geikie Gorge an iconic Kimberley attraction. The area is part of an ancient coral reef deeply cut by the Fitzroy River as it travels through the limestone ranges. The best way to see the spectacular scenery is to take a guided boat cruise through the Gorge.
This spectacular 30 metre high walled gorge, located approx 20 kms from Fitzroy Crossing, has been carved by the Fitzroy River through the ancient Devonian limestone reef.Between April and October, the tranquil waters offer a haven for many types of fish and bird life abounds. During this time boat tours are provided by Department of Environment & Conservation (DEC) Rangers.The Gorge is an ideal location for photography, walking, nature observation and picnicking. Rangers are based in the park throughout the dry season.
