Here's some good news for anyone heading to WA's Kimberley region.

The ABC is reporting that Danggu Geikie Gorge NP is expected to reopen to visitors just in time for the 2024 dry season.

Facilities at Danggu Geikie Gorge were heavily damaged when the Fitzroy River flooded last year and a significant rebuild was required.

The park is an important cultural site for Bunuba traditional owners and a major tourist attraction for Kimberley town Fitzroy Crossing.

Dan͟ggu Geikie Gorge was carved by the Fitzroy River through an ancient limestone barrier reef. It's mind blowing to think that around 250 million years ago much of the Kimberley region was an ancient sea - and the best way to experience the gorge is by walking or 4WDing it.

Dan͟ggu Geikie Gorge is 20km from the Fitzroy Crossing township, 280km from Derby and 390km from Broome. The road accessing the park is sealed bitumen and a four-wheel drive vehicle is not required.

One top walk there is the 4.4km Jarrambayah Trail. According to Trails WA rail meanders along the sandy bank of the Fitzroy River floodplain to the west wall of Geike Gorge, past limestone reef outcrops sculpted by seasonal flooding. This is the only walk to offer a view of the gorge walls.
