Fitzroy Crossing Two Days

 

Day One

Set on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River, Fitzroy Crossing is not a big town, but has a big past. No visit is complete without a drive out to the original town site to explore the history of the old town. Visit the legendary Crossing Inn, built in 1897 as a shanty inn and trade store for long distance travellers about to ford the mighty Fitzroy River.

Fitzroy Crossing is the stopping off point for visitors on their way to the many attractions of the Kimberley and offers a mix of accommodation, from hotels, motels and safari lodges to caravan parks and camping grounds.

The Fitzroy River is one of the largest rivers in the world. Find a good spot and fish for the elusive Barramundi, or take a boat cruise to Geikie Gorge with experienced Indigenous guides and learn about bush tucker, medicine and traditional customs.

Day Two

Take a full day tour to Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek National Parks in country of the Bunuba Aboriginal language group. Hear the story of Jandamara (Pigeon), the famous Indigenous outlaw and his gang. Or book a guided tour of Mimbi Caves with an Indigenous guide and explore what is considered to be one of Western Australia’s largest cave systems.
