Reviews of Fitzroy Crossing

The crossing of Fitzroy or Fitzroy Crossing is a miniscule town located in the North-West of the continent in Western Australia.

My suggestion:
This place is of no particular interest, there is no need to stop for long, other than to fill your vehicle with fuel and refresh yourself before continuing on your Australian itinerary.
My review

I passed through Fitzroy Crossing on the way to Broome and found the town of very little of interest. Some shacks, large farms, a pub, a petrol station and the strange atmosphere of these Australian places, in the middle of a desert where silence and ruggedness seem to be the norm. Around 1500 people live in Fitzroy Crossing in very difficult climatic conditions with summers where temperatures touch 50°C.

Furthermore, Fitzroy Crossing is known for a large Aboriginal community hard hit by alcoholism, so much so that, in 2008 the Rudd government made an attempt to prevent it by setting up a limitation policy for the sale of alcohol to indigenous people.

The town is located (hence the name) at the confluence of the Fitzroy and Margaret rivers, where you can bathe knowing the possibility of crocodiles being present!
