We only stayed in Fitzroy Crossing for three nights.On the first day, we went to Geikie Gorge.We went on a tour boat that went for about 2 hours, just floating along stream.We saw lots of Fresh Water Crocs, and different types of rocks too.There were Elephant Rock,a Crocodile Rock and also the Golf Ball Rock.

DID YOU KNOW?Geikie Gorge used to be the coral reef sea floor, millions of years ago?Well, it certainly doesn't look like it now!

Geikie Gorge was very beautiful and interesting.

The second day, we went and explored Tunnel Creek.We left at 6:30 in the morning because it was going to be a very hot day.At first, we weren't sure if we were going to go or not, because there had recently been fires.It was 120km one way to Tunnel Creek, but once we got there we knew it was worth it.We walked 200m to the entrance, and another 200m from the entrance, it was pitch dark(luckily we had a torch!).Halfway through the tunnel, was a large gap through the rock,which had heaps and heaps of bats swooping in.Just passed halfway, we spotted our first freshy lying in the water, which was pretty exciting for us.Tunnel Creek was magnificent and well worth going to.

Fitzroy Crossing wasn't too bad, but there wasn't alot to it.We met some really nice friends there too,which made the place special.Cam,Janet,Teigan,Erin and Rhys were one family that we met that were very friendly, we met them on the tour boat at Geikie Gorge.We also met Mark, Mickey,Emma and Charlie in Fitzroy Crossing,in the camp kitchen watching 'Man vs Wild'.They were very friendly too.We hoe to see them soon down south on our travels.
