Day 29

Fitzroy Crossing

Today we visited Geike Gorge.  It was a beautiful location, and we saw some awesome sights, but we did not enjoy ourselves the whole time… But first, some pictures.

The most stunning feature of Geikie Gorge however, is the limestone reef which has been carved away (to form the gorge) by the Fitzroy River. Some gorgeous rock formations too.

On the way in, we walked in on the side furthest from the riverside.  Very close to the rocks.  geikie_gorge2We could look over the dry portion of the riverbed to the opposite wall of the gorge.

We did make it back eventually though.
