Geikie Gorge - Fitzroy Crossing

Description

Geikie Gorge National Park is a national park in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, 1,837 kilometres northeast of Perth and approximately 420 km east of Broome by road. The gorge was named in honour of Sir Archibald Geikie, the Director General of Geological Survey for Great Britain and Ireland when it was given its European name in 1883. Sir Archibald never visited the gorge and in due course the traditional owners, the Bunuba people, hope that it will be more generally known by its Aboriginal name, Darngku.

RvTrips' review

23 Aug 2015

Geikie Gorge National Park is located about 20 kilometres from Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.  Geikie Gorge has been carved out of limestone by the Fitzroy RIver - apparently the limestone was once a reef at the bottom of an ancient sea. There are several guided cruises available to travel on the Fitzroy River through the gorge - check at the Fitzroy Crossing Visitor Centre.

Geikie Gorge National Park is for day use only and camping is not allowed - there are shaded picnic tables, barbeques, water and toilets available - no pets are permitted.

There are several walking tracks within the park to explore this beautiful part of the country -  

  • Jarrambayah Walk - 1.5 hours return which can be quite difficult as the rivers edge is sandy. Wear good walking shoes and remember to take lots of water.
  • Rarrgi Walk - 20 minutes return with some minor rock climbing which will give you a good look at the limestone
  • Bun-Gu Walk - 20 minutes return which takes you to the junction of the Fitzroy and Margaret Rivers - the Sandbar.
