Do yourself a favour and make sure to factor in a visit to the historic Crossing Inn – the oldest licensed venue in the Kimberley, and an iconic Australian pub that’s oozing with regional flavour.
This remarkable establishment was always destined for success – its enviable location on the banks of the stunning Fitzroy River is hard to beat.
Certainly no flash in the pan, the Crossing Inn has stood the test of time. It’s a Kimberley institution that’s stood here on the same site since 1897!
The perfect spot to pump the brakes and stop in for a tasty meal and refreshments. There’s a caravan park with camping available and excellent facilities, so you might want to post up for a while and soak in the serenity.
