Fitzroy River and Geike Gorge
Broome and we headed to Fitzroy Crossing. We are both travelling around
Australia but in different directions - we are now heading east and they are
now heading west. We will meet up again in Melbourne later in the year. We
have enjoyed our time with them and it was sad to say good bye.
It was a trip of 260 kilometres and we arrived in Fitzroy Crossing early
this afternoon. Fitzroy Crossing is a popular stop off as it is close to
Geike Gorge which is a National Park. After checking into the caravan park
we drove the twenty kilometres out to the gorge. We were too late in the
day to take one of the river cruises but instead we walked the Jarrambayah
walk which took about an hour and a half. This walk follows the western
edge of the gorge and one way follows the river.
As we walked along the river bank the afternoon cruises boat came along.
