Information

This is a major river crossing. At this point, the river is 60 metres wide and the water will be flowing quite quickly just after the end of the Wet. i.e. April Care should be taken at high water levels due to the flow of the water exerting extreme pressure on the side of the vehicle. However, as the dry season proceeds, the flow is greatly reduced with the depth less than 30 cm and it is safer to ford. This is a scenic area with panoramic views to the Cockburn Ranges. Campsites are along the east and west banks of the river. Beware of salt water crocodiles which have been sighted in the area. The ford is only a few km above the tidal salt water of the estuary.
