Should we attempt the Pentecost River Crossing?
Truck crossing the Pentecost River
We are planning a road trip to Kununurra next year. We won't be doing the entire Gibb River Road on this trip given the vehicle we will be in, however we were hoping to go as far as Home Valley Station for a few nights.
Whilst we have a 4WD it is not a full fledged 4WD – it is a Toyota Kluger (it doesn't have a low box or clearance as high as full fledged 4WD - although it's clearance is higher than 2WDs).
My concern is crossing the Pentecost River. We intend visiting late in the season – mid August.
I know you can't guarantee if we will be able to cross the river without issue, however I am interested in your opinion as to whether we should attempt it.
I am interested if anybody else has attempted in a similar vehicle.
