Fitzroy Crossing is a small town in the Kimberley region of Western Australia; it is located 400 kilometres east of Broome and 300 kilometres west of Halls Creek.
One of the first European explorers of the Kimberly area was Alexander Forrest and his party in 1879, who followed the Fitzroy River to its junction with the Margaret River at Geikie George.
Fitzroy Crossing is set along the Great Northern Highway, at the point where the highway crosses the Fitzroy River (as the name suggests). the town is in two parts, the new Fitzroy Crossing and the old Fitzroy Crossing.
Fitzroy Crossing is a great place from which to explore the surrounding Devonian Reef National Parks, due to its proximity. There are various things to do around Fitzroy Crossing and a number of tours provided by Bungoolee Tours and Fitzroy Crossing Tours. You will also find the oldest pub in the Kimberley in Fitzroy Crossing, called the Crossing Inn.
There is also accommodation at Fitzroy Crossing which is a good base to stay and visit the surrounding area.
