About this place
Dan͟ggu Geikie Gorge is closed for 2023 due to flood damage.
Dan͟ggu Geikie Gorge views are of the spectacular multicoloured 30m deep cliffs carved by the floodwaters of the Fitzroy River through the Devonian fossil reef.
Cultural guided boat tours begin in May and end at the end of October (weather permitting).
Explore the ancient limestone reef system and aboriginal heritage and see the birdlife, fruit bats and freshwater crocodiles.
The east bank is a sanctuary zone for wildlife, with no unsupervised entry to this area.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
When you are entering the Kimberley or Pilbara regions, you are entering crocodile country. Two species of crocodile occur in Western Australia: the estuarine (or saltwater) crocodile and the freshwater crocodile. The estuarine crocodile is the largest living reptile and is considered to be a dangerous predator. Freshwater crocodiles are smaller and not as aggressive. Freshwater crocodiles inhabit Danggu Geikie Gorge. Saltwater crocodiles have not been known to occur in the area, but this may change.
Crocs are common, crocs move around and crocs are deadly so Be Crocwise. Download the Crocodile safety and myth busting fact sheet.
Pay attention to all warning signs, however just because a sign isn’t there doesn’t mean crocodiles aren’t present. If you are unsure don't swim, canoe or use small boats in estuaries, tidal rivers or pools and contact the nearest Parks and Wildlife office.
