Oolloo Crossing

Oolloo Crossing is one of the NT government’s conservation areas. At times you may be able to cross the Daly River at Oolloo Crossing. Once you have crossed the river, access to the property on the opposite bank is prohibited.

Warning: Saltwater crocodiles inhabit both the Douglas and Daly Rivers – please observe the signs regarding safety, and swim at your own risk

Oolloo Crossing

The crossing is a good spot to fish for barramundi with a plenty of dead trees providing shelter for these predatory fish. I have seen small tinnies being launched below the crossing.

Notes

Bush camping on the banks above the river. No water or facilities are available.

The crossing provides access to the pastoral land on the opposite side of the Daly River. The owners of this land are the Wagiman and it falls under the Upper Daly Aboriginal land Trust. From what I can gather, this land is being leased out to local farmers for grazing.

Oolloo road then seems to change name and is indicated as Oolloo Xing Wombungi once crossing over the Daly. The road then runs from the Upper Daly Aboriginal Land Trust back into Tipperary Station, only to enter the Upper Daly Aboriginal Land Trust again where it seems to come to an end.
