Information

NOTE: This is not the location of the Gibb River Road crossing over the Pentecost River (see separate nearby Place listing for Pentecost River Crossing), but is further upstream.

The Pentecost River rises in the Durack Range and flows north through El Questro Station where it joins the Chamberlain River, then continues north crossing the Gibb River Road, skirts the eastern edge of Drysdale River National Park and later discharges into the west arm of the Cambridge Gulf.

Tributaries of the Pentecost include the Chamberlain River, Salmond River, Gap Creek and Five Mile Creek. The Chamberlain and Salmond are both longer than the Pentecost.

The river is named after surveyor and geologist John Pentecost, who surveyed the river in 1882 on an expedition led by Michael Durack.
