Travelling the Halls Creek region is an adventure, an experience framed with tranquil Kimberley surroundings and a pleasant climate.

Steeped in early gold pioneering history, Halls Creek is a fascinating place for explorers. Gold was found in 1885 starting Western Australia’s first main gold rush.

The Aboriginal art and culture are interesting high-lights incorporating various art communities that demonstrate unique styles.

Pastoral and tourism industries are important to the area and Halls Creek has many world-class attractions definitely worth visiting. The World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungle) is approximately 360 million years old, the Wolfe Creek Crater, the China Wall of natural quartz-vein formations, the Old Halls Creek township, the serene Palm Springs, picnicking at Caroline Pool and swimming in Sawpit Gorge.
Attractions:
Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater
Situated 135kms south of Halls Creek off the Tanami Track. Set in arid flat country this immense crater measures 850 metres in diameter and is the second largest in the world.
Canning Stock Route
Check in at the Halls Creek Visitors Centre, Shire Office or Police Station. This historical route dates to 1906 with interesting pioneering adventure and pastoral characters. 4WD only.
Russian Jack
A statue jointly erected by the Shire of Halls Creek and the State Government in 1979 to honour all the pioneers of the Kimberley region.
C.P. Somers was the artist involved with this project.
China Wall
A sub vertical quartz vein protruding up to 6m from the surrounding surface. The quartz is hard and remains resistant to weathering. Its length is a mystery as the formation is visible from air at several locations on route to the Bungle Bungle.
Caroline Pool
During the wet season it is ideal for swimming, however in the dry it becomes a pleasant picnic spot with a series of small water holes, shady trees and a wide bank which provides the perfect path for bushwalks.
Old Halls Creek
Home to the first gold discovery in WA in 1885. Old town is mystical, visit the old mud slab post office.
Halls Creek Town Walk
Following a series of hand-carved and painted totems, it takes you to each of the special locations and helps you discover the town’s rich heritage in as little as 40 minutes. Dotted around the townsite are nine unique, hand-crafted wooden totems, each expressing one aspect of local history or culture in words and vivid artwork. By following the totems, you will not only learn about the history - you will also visit important historic sites that have been restored as part of the project. You will even see a special bush garden that demonstrates the importance of local planting and food plants that can be grown successfully in the Halls Creek region.
