The Ord river can either be a trickle or a large body of water, depending on when you visit the region. Luckily there is a new Highway Bridge that eliminates the fear of crossing a sometimes flooded river.
Internet connection not the best.
The water level in the dam varies quite a bit if you are in a drought cycle or a normal season.
P.S. The dam was completed in 1898, but never realy used.
The road in is now all bitumen (not dirt) but it is somewhat narrow, so need to travel in slowly, particularly if towing a caravan.
