Ivanhoe Crossing was originally part of the main Kununurra to Wyndham Road.
This concrete causeway was built over the mighty Ord River and remains in flow year round. The crossing is a great place to cast a line in search of the elusive barramundi, or to enjoy sunset across the river.
Depending on road openings, it may be possible to drive over the crossing, however it is important to bear in mind that the crossing itself is wide, and the current from the river very strong. Road access to the opposite side of the crossing is also possible via the Victoria Highway (travelling in the direction of Wyndham), turning off the highway to follow signage to Valentine Springs, Black Rock Falls and Middle Springs.
Estuarine crocodiles can be seen at Ivanhoe Crossing, so the area is not safe for swimming. Please pay attention to the safety signage at the crossing itself.
