During the wet season, the Roper River is usually too high for vehicles to cross at the causeway, known as the Roper bar. Both the approach and exit to the bar is via a dirt track and is a 4WD crossing at all times.

The main crossing over the Roper River is via a concrete bridge upstream about a km to the west.
On the SW corner of the causeway just up the hill is the ruins of the old police station. Worth a look.
