The basics

Visitors to Danggu Geikie Gorge can get out on the water on a boat tour offering insights into the geology of the gorge and its wildlife. A heritage cruise, guided by the Indigenous Bunana people, introduces visitors to the cultural significance of the gorge. Hiking is another popular activity and there are a handful of marked trails of varying lengths that you can follow.

One of the most stunning sights is the color of the cliffs. During the dry season, when the water level is low, the lower half of the walls is visible and bleached white due to flooding during the wet season, which sees the Fitzroy River rise up to 52 feet (16 meters) up the gorge walls.
