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.

  • highly recommended especially in cool months. July was perfect for us.
  • Nice enough. You can see fresh water crocodiles on the river banks.
  • Its aNational Park. Why would you take a dog.,
  • The scenery is wonderful and my wife thoroughly enjoyed it, but there were no dog bins anywhere! I had to carry the dog poop in a bag for miles until we got home. The local council should know better!
