Halls Creek

Halls Creek lies on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert, at the junction of the Great Northern Highway and Duncan Road in the north west of the State. Halls Creek is the town closest to Purnululu National Park, the park of the famous Bungle Bungles. Also nearby is Wolfe Creek Crater, the second largest meteorite crater in the world. Tours of the crater and the Bungle Bungles are available from the town. Visit the site of the first goldrush in Western Australia following the discovery in 1885. You can still find gold in the area, particularly around the old town site which is 16 kilometres east of Halls Creek and also features ruins of mud brick buildings and a small cemetery. Mineral exploration continues on a large scale in the area. The town is also the hub of a vast cattle industry. Russian Jack, a goldmining character from the turn of the century who typified the hardy brand of early Halls Creek pioneers, has been immortalised in the town's main street. The bronze statue depicts him in the act of pushing his sick friend in a wheelbarrow over 300 kilometres to Halls Creek in search of medical attention. Halls Creek services the tourist market with a hotel, motel, caravan park and two roadhouses.
