The Pentecost River is a major river crossing. The river can be 60+ metres wide and the water often flows quickly just after the end of the Wet Season . i.e. April -May. Care should be taken at high water levels due to the flow of the water exerting extreme pressure on the side of the vehicle.
By the end of the dry season, September to October on average, the flow of the Pentecost River is greatly reduced with the depth less than 50 cm and it is much safer to cross. A scenic area with panoramic views towards the Cockburn Range and nearby sight of some campsites along the east and west banks of the Penecost River on the northern side of the crossing. Beware of salt water crocodiles in the area.
