Halls Creek

Halls Creek in Western Australia (WA) sits on the northern edge of the Great Sandy Desert, 289 kilometres east of Fitzroy Crossing. The site of Western Australia’s first gold discovery in 1885, Halls Creek became prospecting grounds to more than 15,000 people from all over the world.

In 1955 the town was relocated 15 kilometres to the northwest and was the last stop for farmers driving cattle along the legendary Canning Stock Route.

Today, Halls Creek in WA is home to successful farming and mining industries and is a great base for exploring the area’s natural and historical attractions.

Take a tour or scenic flight from Halls Creek to the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park and Bungle Bungle Range. Visit the second largest meteorite crater in the world at Wolfe Creek Crater National Park. Marvel at the China Wall, a six-metre high wall of quartz rock believed to be part of the longest single fault of its type in the world. Check out the old Halls Creek town site, a reminder of the town’s mining history. Enjoy the peace and beauty of the fresh water springs at Palm Springs or Caroline’s Pool. Or head out to Sawpit Gorge for a swim, picnic and a spot of fishing.
