Information

This junction is located 415km east of Derby and 290km west from Kununurra. This is a major intersection of 2 heavily corrugated dirt roads in the Kimberley. Both roads are subject to seasonal flooding and occasional closure during the monsoonal wet season. There is a well set up roadside stop here with an information board, picnic table, shade hut, rubbish dump and large clearing.

The Kalumburu Road provides the only access to the northern Kimberley region with the Mitchell Plateau and coastal Kalumburu community attracting the more adventurous 4WD and fishing enthusiasts during the dry season (May - October).

The turnoff to Mitchell Plateau is found 159km north from this junction along the Kalumburu Road, and Kalumburu is another 103km on - a total of 262km from this point. Fuel supplies and accommodation are available at Drysdale Station, and Kalumburu.
