Fitzroy Crossing

Fitzroy Crossing

Set on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River, 391 kilometres east of Broome, Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia (WA) is a true outback town. Drive out to the original town site and visit the legendary Crossing Inn, built in 1897 as a shanty inn and trade store for long-distance travelers. Or try your luck at Barramundi fishing on the Fitzroy River.

Today, Fitzroy Crossing in WA is a great base to explore Tunnel Creek National Park and Windjana Gorge National Park.  It’s also the gateway to the Geikie Gorge National Park, a spectacular waterway with soaring weathered cliffs and abundant wildlife. Indigenous tours also offer an excellent insight to local Indigenous history and culture, including bush tucker and medicine.

Mimbi Caves are located 90 km east of Fitzroy Crossing and is accessible through a tour.  The cave system reveals ancient large scale fossilised reefs that are amongst the best preserved in the world. This extraordinary location attracts geologists from all over the world  and you can view speleothems, tall slender stalagmites, shawls, flowstones and sparkling calcite crystals formed over millennia.
