Hi all, I've heard that currently the bar is open and can only be crossed at low tide (and even then to take care).

Anyone checked it out recently?

Always worth being careful, but if you get it right it should be no problem.
Check the tide times beforehand too. No sense in making it harder than necessary.
We had to help extract a Troopy before we crossed.

'07 John.
That little "jump up" getting out was the tricky bit at that time.
Too fast and you break the front end. Too slow/not enough power/tyres too high and you stop a "bit" short.
When you get there it will be different from what anyone describes.

There has been a total cyclone season failure - all the pastorilists are doing it tough

was there 6 months ago and it was about 2m accross and not ankle deep - it wont have changed

tourist beuro were saying its uncrossable crossed it at several stages of tide - didnt change

Hi John, we were at the xing on Saturday. The bar had 2 inches of water flowing over it in two 4m wide streams. Watched 2 4WD go across with barely a splash. But it was dead low tide with the sea about a metre below the sandbar at 0.42 on the tide chart posted on the nearby info board. The track south to Ningaloo is a corrugated dry sand shocker as is the one heading north from Coral Bay... W
