Fitzroy Crossing

Fitzroy Crossing sits along the great Fitzroy River and is the traditional land of Banuba people. The original town site and crossing stand as a reminder of early droving days. A little further along the banks of the Fitzroy River is Geigie Gorge with its ancient limestone reef that was once part of an inland sea that stretched from Derby to Kununurra.  Over time, the limestone ridges have been both sculptured by rain and sandblasted during floods to give the contrasting black and white appearance.
