1 Best Sight in Geikie Gorge National Park, The Kimberley

Danggu Geikie Gorge National Park

Geologists believe the mighty Fitzroy River cut and shaped the limestone walls you see today at Danggu Geikie Gorge, and during the wet season, the normally placid waters roar through the region. The walls of the gorge are stained red from iron oxide, except where they have been leached of the mineral and turned white by the floods, which have washed as high as 52 feet from the bottom of the gorge.

The gorge is one of the few places in the world where freshwater barramundi, mussels, stingrays, and prawns swim. The park is also home to the freshwater archerfish, which can spit water as far as a yard to knock insects out of the air. Aboriginal people call this place Danggu, meaning "big fishing hole."
