Halls Creek is located 2900 km ( 1800 miles ) north east of Perth on the edge of the Kimberleys and Great Sandy Desert. The town was the centre of vast gold discoveries in the late nineteenth century but the supply has dwindled over the years.
The town is now a significant cattle centre and the site of much mineral related activity. Halls Creek is surrounded by several unique features namely a quartz wall, a meteor crater and a waterhole. There is a range of limited accommodation in the area and the town is a base for light aircraft and 4WD tours into the Pernululu Park which includes the famous Bungle Bungles. Tours operate from the region to the Kimberleys, Gibb River Road, Windjana Way etc
Fitzroy Crossing is a few hundread Km south west of Purnululu National Park, home of The Bungle Bungles. These are unique sandstone domes quite like anything else, anywhere in the world.
