18. Junction Viewing Tower

This steel spiral staircase, opened in 1991, has 35 steps leading to a viewing platform which gives you a great view of the confluence of the Darling & Murray Rivers. The viewing tower was a project initiated by the Wentworth Rotary Club with assistance and funding from Wentworth Shire Council and the Water Resources Commission. If both rivers are flowing, you will notice two different colours merging; the Darling River bed is clay based and the Murray River is sand based.
