An easy 30 minute loop walk along the banks of the Fitzroy River to the Sandbar in Geike Gorge National Park. Learn something of the Bunaba people’s heritage.
This walk meanders from the information gazebo down to the sandbar at the river. This area is a popular fishing and swimming place. You can then return to the gazebo via the river or through the open savannah woodland beside the road. Trailside signs interpret local Bunaba people's knowledge and use of the plants, animals and landscape. The sandbar is at the junction of the Margaret River and the Fitzroy River.
About the region

Danggu Geikie Gorge is located 20km from the Fitzroy Crossing township, 280km from Derby and 390km from Broome. The road accessing the park is sealed bitumen and a four-wheel-drive vehicle is not required.
