Geikie Gorge National Park, Fitzroy Crossing

4.4
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Fitzroy Crossing holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Geikie Gorge National Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    This is a must see if your travelling through Fitzroy Crossing. We even caught a glimpse of some fresh water crocodiles. An amazing experience

    A really nice day use National Park with easy sealed road access. A few nice walks although the longer ones along the river in the gorge are on soft sand without much shade and can be tough going. The best way to see the gorge however is on the Ranger guided boat cruise that runs every couple of hours. The wildlife is abundant and the scenery spectacular.

    Beautiful and interesting, good boat tour, though some of the other gorges are more rewarding.

    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
