      Three national parks with three stunning gorges were once part of a western 'great barrier reef' in the Devonian era, million years ago. Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek National Parks are accessed via the unsealed Fairfield-Leopold Downs Rd (linking the Great Northern Hwy with the Gibb River Road), while Geikie Gorge National Park is 22km northeast of Fitzroy Crossing.
