General:
Fitzroy Crossing, on the Fitzroy River, is situated in the centre of some of the best pastoral country in Australia with other interests being mining and tourism.
History:
The Old Town began where there was a suitable place to ford the river and is located on the river bank, just out of reach of major flood waters.
Still standing is the original causeway crossing, the former post office, the police station and a footbridge across the Brooking Creek, linking the Inn and the original cemetery.
Attractions:
Post Office
The original buildings built in the 1930s were used until 1984. There were only two telephone lines out of Fitzroy Crossing until 1984 and very few private phones.
Geikie Gorge
Carved by the Fitzroy River through an ancient limestone reef, the tranquil waters (April – October) of Geikie Gorge abound with fish, and birds are attracted to its tree lined banks.
During the tourist season, regular boat trips are available, along with an Aboriginal cultural tour of the Gorge.
Note Fitzroy Crossing to Derby, via Tunnel Creek and Windjana Gorge, is only 285kms (4WD only).
