Information

The Stuart Highway crosses the Finke River here. The Finke River is one of the world's oldest watercourses and flows south for 650km from the MacDonald Range to be lost in the sands of the Simpson Desert. Over many millions of years the river and its tributaries have carved out the rugged landscapes that it passes through.

The Western Aranda name for the Finke River is Tjoritja urlpaya, however it is known as Lhere pirnte south of Hermannsburg.

There is a small rest area to the north of this crossing on the eastern side of the highway. See Nearby Listings for details.
