Geikie Gorge National Park
The Geikie Gorge National Park, situated 16km from Fitzroy Crossing, covers an area of 3,136ha. This exquisite gorge has been formed by the Fitzroy River, which over the years has sliced through an ancient limestone barrier reef it is 14km long and approximately 30m high. Flood action reaching a height of 16m above the normal level has left the cliffs white and fossil deposits are visible.
Geikie Gorge contains permanent fresh water throughout its length and supports sawfish, stingrays, freshwater crocodiles and many other varieties of fish, bird life and animals. A Cruise up the Gorge with one of the Park Rangers will offer an insight into the park's features as well as a relaxing view of nature at work.
The park normally opens in early to mid April after the mighty Fitzroy River has subsided.
Daily boat tours of the Gorge leave at 9.00am and 3.00pm sharp. (April October). Private watercraft are not allowed in the Gorge immediately prior to these tours. Half day Aboriginal tours conducted by Darngku Heritage Tours include a gorge cruise.
