Sightseeing and Attractions
The Crossing Inn is the perfect stopover while you relax, sit back with a cold drink, and plan the many exciting things there are to see and discover.
Romantically isolated, and featuring stunning scenery, as well as plenty of the really "hard" country that is outback Australia, the Fitzroy River and surrounds has something to offer almost any tourist. Wild life everywhere, magical boating, and a river famous the world over for its barramundi fishing.
There are a number of tours available along the river, where the river, the wildlife (including the freshwater crocodiles) and the atmosphere itself are sure to impress.
Once you decide to range a little further from town, Geikie Gorge National Park, Wandjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek are all spectacular destinations, with geography and sights not found anywhere else in the world. If you are unwilling to make the trip yourself, there are a number of tour operators in town who will happily take you.
