Geikie Gorge River Walk and Reef Walk
Starting from the car park at the end of Geikie Gorge Road, Danggu Gorge National Park, this walk explores Geike Gorge alongside the Fitzroy River via the Bungu Trail and the Jarrambayah Trail. This walk starts by following the Bungu Trail along the banks of the Fitzroy River to the sandbar, a popular fishing and swimming place. The walk then follows the Jarrambayah Trail to the point where the west wall of Geike Gorge meets the river, providing excellent views of the bleached eastern gorge walls. As you cross the floodplains, you'll pass weathered remains of limestone reef outcrops sculpted by seasonal flooding. Freshwater crocodiles can be seen basking in full view on the riverbanks and exposed rocks. The freshwater crocodiles aren't considered a threat if undisturbed, so you can even swim off the sandbanks at your own risk. The walk is on dirt and sandy tracks, with some sections of uneven, rocky and unmodified terrain. Beware of submerged snags and logs when swimming. Refrain from trying to climb the reef wall, it's extremely dangerous not only to you but to others as well. The park is closed during the wet season (December to March). Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
