Geikie Gorge.

Geikie Gorge can be found in the top part of Western Australia in the Kimberly region. It is located 20 kilometres out west from the town of Fitzroy Crossing or 280 kilometres east of Derby.

The area is open to the public from 6.30am until 6.30pm each day unless the area has been flooded during the wet season that runs from December through to March each year.

During the wet season the water will rise by as much as 16.5 metres making this river one of the fastest flowing rivers in the world. The white colours of the walls indicate the water level during the wet season.

The water supports sawfish, stingrays, freshwater crocodiles and many other fish species. There are public toilets, a shelter shed, BBQ facilities and large picnic area for visitors to use while visiting.

Mick I am in awe that you have these two photos in your portfolio of photographs. One day I hope to be able to add them to my own.

It is a long way from home, but a very nice place to visit with beautiful colours.
