Discovery : Pentecost River

Discovery (Post#45) : Pentecost River

One of the main reason why Gibb River Road is closed during wet seasons or when it rains is because of Pentecost River. This river is crossing Gibb River Road or Gibb River Road is crossing Pentecost River. And when I checked the map of the river, it is the same river that partially parallels in the bush walked we did following Champagne Springs Trail. It is not surprising if El Questro Station is closed during the same season. The river named after John Pentecost – a surveyor of the river and geologist under the expedition led by Michael Durack in 1882. These photos are part of Day 6 (Gibb River Road) of 9 Days Darwin to Broome Overland Adventure Tour October 2016.
