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..............
