Broome to Halls Creek
BROOME TO HALLS CREEK BUS
Get a taste of the real Australian Outback when you travel through the Kimberley from Broome to Halls Creek on a comfortable and convenient Greyhound bus.
Your Outback adventure will begin in Broome, set against a surreal landscape of red rocks, turquoise water and sun-kissed white sand. Broome is best known for Cable Beach, where you can ride a camel while you watch the sun sink into the Indian Ocean.
Other Broome must-dos include taking a hovercraft tour to search for 130 million-year-old dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point; diving into Broome’s history of pearling at the Pearl Luggers Museum; and, between March and October, heading to Town Beach to see the magical ‘Staircase to the Moon’ visual illusion caused by moonlight reflecting off exposed mudflats.
On the bus from Broome to Halls Creek, you’ll pass through Fitzroy Crossing, the gateway to the Devonian Reef national parks. Once upon a time, this part of the Kimberley region was covered by a tropical sea. Today, the rocky landscapes of the three Devonian Reef parks – Geikie Gorge, Tunnel Creek and Windjana Gorge – are looking decidedly less tropical, but are still some of the most impressive landforms in the Kimberley. The most accessible of the parks, Geikie Gorge, is a waterway bracketed by ancient weathered cliffs that still plays host to rare marine life.
When you arrive in Halls Creek, an unassuming small town on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert and Tanami Desert, you’ll find an array of natural marvels awaiting you. Head to Purnululu National Park to see the striking Bungle Bungle Range, a series of sandstone towers that developed their distinctive beehive shape over a period of 20 million years. (Long revered by their Indigenous custodians, they were unknown to the outside world until they were ‘discovered’ in 1983.)
Halls Creek is the gateway to the extraordinary wetlands of Lake Gregory (known to the local Walmajarri people as Paraku), home to 70 species of waterbirds and 175 aquatic species. More than 100,000 birds are regular visitors to the wetlands, so there’ll be plenty of opportunities for birdwatching when you visit.
Halls Creek is also the closest town to the awe-inspiring Wolfe Creek Crater National Park. Don’t be put off by the name – this park has nothing to do with John Jarratt, and everything to do with a meteorite that hit Earth travelling at 15km (9mi) per second, 300,000 years ago. The result was the second-largest meteorite crater in the world, and today, standing on the rim of the massive circular crater is an incredible sight.
