Day 1 Fitzroy Crossing and Geikie Gorge
Passing boab trees, fascinating termite mounds and roaming cattle, enjoy the local knowledge and interesting stories your guide has to share. Journey into Kimberley gorge country and through the savannah.
On reaching the historic town of Fitzroy Crossing, discover the ancient Napier Range, a limestone Devonian reef 350 million years old and home to the famous Geikie Gorge.
The best way to experience the scenery and abundant wildlife of this natural wonder is to join a river cruise (included). Geikie Gorge floods during the wet season, with the swirling water leaving its bleached mark on the colourful gorge walls.
Though the water retreats during the dry season, water holes remain and sustain the wide variety of Kimberley wildlife. Towards sunset, settle in for an evening under the Kimberley night sky - relax as your guide prepares a campfire barbeque dinner.
