The road to Numbulwar can be treacherous during the wet

TruckStuckDuring the wet season, the road to Numbulwar can be treacherous with high water in multiple creek and river crossings, and very soft muddy roads themselves. The above is a truck that came through to Ngukurr from Numbulwar on Sunday, but got bogged on the return trip – driving over road that turned to mud beneath the wheels.

This is despite this wet season not being as big as last year’s. You can see in the images below the new bridge over the Wilton River, which this time last year was around 2M – 3M under water.

On the left is the bridge just this week, on the right is a shot from roughly the same area this time last year (see the forked tree on the left side in both images).
