I'd know that crossing anywhere. Back in '74 I drowned a Yam 175 Trail on the other side of the river, to the left side of the causeway. Put the side-stand down in, shall we say, less than firm ground, stepped off and in she went, while the engine was still turning over. Needless to say, it stopped abruptly the moment it went under.
Diamantina River - old crossing, just down the road from the thriving metropolis of Birdsville, QLD.

Called by there in October after a Simpson Desert crossing. Will take another look at it on my April/May trip.
So far only me on a Tenere and a mate driving a Toyota tray back to carry food/fuel etc. Going from Dalhousie to Birdsville via Rig Road/Knolls/QAA.
If anyone is interested..............
