Starting from the car park at the end of Geike Gorge Road, this walk takes you on a circuit in Geike Gorge National Park. The walk traverses around a limestone Devonian reef, Geike Gorge, that was formed around 360 million years ago. Take your time and enjoy the sublime feeling this enormous formation provides as it is situated roughly 100 metres above the surrounding plain land. Fitzroy River passes through the limestone and consequently creates the Geike Gorge, a significant natural formation caused by erosive forces. There is an hour cruise for visitors to explore the area as well. The track is hardened, and there are only gentle hills along. Additionally, Fitzroy River is known to have fresh crocodiles, and saltwater crocs have got into the area in the past; swimming is not recommended. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
