Geikie Gorge National Park, Fitzroy Crossing

(170+ reviews on the web)
Canyon
Take a guided boat tour through Geikie Gorge National Park, cut deep into an ancient limestone reef by the Fitzroy River. Though most of this impressive gorge is protected and closed to the public, flat-bottomed tourist boats sail through several of its sections regularly, offering numerous opportunities to observe the native wildlife. The park is home to a diverse fauna, including flying foxes, numerous water birds, and freshwater crocodiles. Tackle a walking trail along the western bank of the river to see the exposed and distinctly colored fossil-bearing layers of the gorge. You can also try swimming near a long sandbank at the junction of the Margaret and Fitzroy Rivers. Call ahead or check online for tour availability and departure times. Make Geikie Gorge National Park a centerpiece of your Fitzroy Crossing vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Fitzroy Crossing tourist route planner.

  • I went on the 4pm trip. The setting sun enhanced the colours of the rocks. Highly recommend this trip, don't forget to show your seniors card if you have one
  • Do the cruise, it's the best way to explore the gorge. Walks aren't worth doing
  • Geikie Gorge was absolutely amazing. The cruise is a must do when in Fitzroy Crossing.
  • highly recommended especially in cool months. July was perfect for us.
  • Nice enough. You can see fresh water crocodiles on the river banks.
