I was there last July and it was about a metre deep in water...a little soft, but no problems crossing and plenty of people around to help if required.

A long way from RAC assistance !

I've walked across it, because there was no-one prepared to take the risk of taking a camera over to the other side.

I live locally and if crossing Yardie Creek use some common sense when crossing, low tide is obviously the best time, if the tide is up dont cross as there are channels where ur vehicle will disappear in.


Watch out for the idiots that swim in it as most have no car sense,and will happily swim across in front of u,

We went there in Jan 2009,as the local guy says ,only at low tide, walk across first .Soft sand on south side ,drop tyre pressure and its pretty easy .

I was there last week,just before low tide and there were still deep channels. No signs of any cars making the crossing recently. The usual sand bar was gone,if coming from the south you had to turn towards the ocean and there was half a sandbar,then a drop off into the channel. Also the south side of the track from Coral Bay to Ningaloo was badly corrugated.Had to help 2 pommie backpackers in an old Merc sedan that only made it about 10km in before the muffler fell off and the heater tap broke.
