Just 2 km east of the roadhouse the GRR crosses the Barnett River. A 2 lane wide concrete causeway is likely to be covered in 20 cm of soft sand in May/June while there is still a water flow. If momentum is maintained vehicles will easily cross the ford. But stopping to enjoy the cooling waters may lead to becoming bogged as the current swirls around the tyres and they sink deeper into the sand.
