Creek crossing on OTT about 4 km south of Eliot Falls turnoff or 700 m north of Fruitbat Falls turnoff. Can be 0.5 to 1 m deep. In 2008 it was only 20 cm deep as the pix show. In the 8 years to 2016 the outlet has been dammed so it is a much more challenging ford.

Since about 2020 there is now a concrete causeway slightly to the east of the original long/deep crossing. Makes for a much shallower crossing and so an easier drive to the popular Eliot Falls.
