Information

The Diamantina is a classic braided stream and has several channels downstream of the Diamantina Gates. The channels criss-cross a floodplain about 5 km wide. The western most channel is the main one and has a concrete causeway at the Springvale road crossing. Others crossings are just dips in the road. Gauges indicate depths with anything over 2.1 metres covering the road. Travellers can access the current gauge height on the BoM site. Link: http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/flood/west.shtml
Flooding is most likely from Jan to April when it is too hot for comfortable camping.
