Geikie Gorge Creek in the Kimberley Western Australia
Geikie Gorge from the Fairfields Leopold Downs Road
Fairfield Leopold Downs Road’s name is derived from the two Cattle Stations it passes through to reach the Gibb River road at its western end.
Geikie Gorge National Park
Geikie Gorge National Park is open for day visits from 6.30am to 6.30pm from April to November.
The park is closed during the wet season (December to March) when the Fitzroy River floods.
There are no camping areas in the national park but there are caravan parks, campgrounds and other accomodation in the nearby town of Fitzroy Crossing.
The town also has a range of facilities and supplies.
Visitors to the park can experience a 350-million-year-old limestone reef system, Aboriginal heritage, bird life, fruit bats, the abundant freshwater crocodiles and experience some great fishing. During the dry season (April to November), private boats and canoes may access the gorge before 7.00am, between 12.00pm and 1.00pm and after 4.00pm. You must notify rangers before launching your boat. Facilities include toilets, water, an information shelter, tour boats and universal access. Due to the wet season floods, these facilities are only available from April to November.
While in town, it's worth the short drive to the original town site and causeway crossing to visit the legendary Crossing Inn or hook a barramundi from the Fitzroy River. Motel-style and caravan park accommodation is available. Visit between May and October, and enjoy warm, dry days and cool evenings. From December to March, you're likely to see storms transform the surrounding landscape into a sea of green.
Bats and crocodiles
