Millstream Chichester NP

Mount Herbert forms part of the Chichester Range within the picturesque Millstream Chichester National Park. The peak of Mount Herbert offers spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Park your car at the base of the mountain and take the challenging 45 minute return climb.

Deep Reach Pool is also easily accessed. A 200m walk from the Deep Reach Pool carpark brings you to a large pool, home of Barrimurdi, the Warlu or Serpent. The Yinibardni people ask that you respect the site and keep noise to a minimum. Fishing, swimming and canoeing is permitted, however motorised watercraft is not permitted.

Scenic Drive

Snappy Gum Drive is a 20km scenic loop road linking the Homestead with Pannawonica Road. Scenic lookouts provide beautiful views across the Fortescue River Valley and the undulating hills and several important indigenous areas can be seen from the road. It can be accessed by 4WD vehicles year round and by 2WD (low clearance) vehicles when indicated on signs found at either entrance point.

Traditional landowners

Yindjibarndi people are the traditional landowners of WA’s Millstream Chichester National Park. The Juluwarlu Aboriginal Corporation has produced "Ngurra Wardurala Buluyagayi: Exploring Yindjibarndi Country". In consultation with the elders, the Corporation has compiled accurate site descriptions, including songs and stories that are linked to the land, in English and Yindjibarndi. The book also includes a fold-out (A3) map of Millstream Chichester National Park making this an essential guide for any visitor who seeks a deeper understanding of Yindjibarndi country.


There are well maintained public camping facilities in WA’s Millstream Chichester National Park, including bush toilets and gas barbeques.
