Information

Ivanhoe Crossing is a 10 min drive north of Kununurra and was once able be crossed when the water was not flowing too high. If the gate is shut the level is deemed too dangerous. When it is just below level with the top of the bollards in the middle the flow is exciting for a firstimer! From 2011 the gate is permanently closed as the council has deemed the crossing too dangerous due to structural failure and too hard and costly to fix.
