A pleasant four kilometre walk along the base of one of the Geike Gorge walls beside the Fitzroy River.
This four kilometre trail meanders along the sandy bank of the Fitzroy River floodplain to the west wall of Geike Gorge, past limestone reef outcrops sculpted by seasonal flooding. This is the only walk to offer a view of the gorge walls. The Fitzroy River cuts through the limestone at the junction of the Geike range with the Oscar Range to converge with the Margaret River before making its way to Fitzroy Crossing. Fossils are visible on some of the gorge walls. The shorter, 600 metre Rarrgi Walk leads off this walk. It is a 30 minute loop walk.
About the region
Danggu Geikie Gorge was carved by the Fitzroy River through part of an ancient limestone barrier reef which snakes across the west Kimberley. It was laid down in an ancient sea that covered a large part of the Kimberley in Devonian times, some 350 million years ago.
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.
