This junction is located just 6km south of Wyndham. The King River Road will eventually lead travellers onto the Old Karunjie Road which intersects the Gibb River Road at the Pentecost River. Numerous interesting sites for day trips, fishing and camping are accessible along the King River Road and the first 25km is on very good dirt road with sign posts to some worthwhile sights such as the Moochalabra Dam, Aboriginal Cave Paintings, King River Crossing, Boab Prison Tree and finally at 74km, the Gibb River Road at the Pentecost Crossing.

There is a fabulous bush campsite with bins under a huge boab tree at the Moochalabra Dam, and lots of great fishing camps along the King River (RHS). These are not marked, but following any of the numerous tracks off to the right will lead to decent camps between 10 – 200m off the road.
