There's salties at least up to Wrotham Park, maybe further upstream. I'd suggest you be very vigilant.

Simple answer is YES. They have been seen a lot further east than the crossing.

Not knowing the reasoning for your question , but if you were looking for access across the Mitchell River to the cape the Dunbar Crossing has been upgraded in the past few years we went across in 2017 . There were people spotlighting at night looking for croc eyes at the camp Crossing .

Thanks for your replies. Am planning to drive out to Karumba to go fishing. Thought this crossing might be the last spot we could jump in for a dip before we get to the gulf as i thought there would definitely be salties further downstream from this crossing. But thanks to you all informing me, we will be reconsidering this option now :)

Didn't know they had been known to be this far inland.
