Fitzroy Crossing is located where the Fitzroy River crosses the Great Northern Highway on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert, Western Australia. The township has grown in size because of both Aboriginal settlement and mining by Western Metals 80 km south-east of the crossing.
Many visitors choose to stay at Fitzroy Crossing when visiting the nearby stunning Geikie Gorge National Park.
