The drive from Fitzroy Crossing to Halls Creek was easy and to some degree, boring. Apart from a handful of photo “ops”, it was mainly straight and flat. There was a noticable increase in traffic heading south probably because of school holidays which started Friday just gone.
Halls Creek has a population of 4000 compared to Fitzroy crossing’s 1500, but town size and infrastructure really don’t reflect that.
Our original plan was to spend 2 nights here so we could drive out to Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater. However, because of flight availability, and economics of driving, we have extended our stay to 4 nights and doing a combined flight to the crater and the Bungle Bungles on Wednesday. This will allow us to drive through to Kununurra on Thursday, the halfway point of this trip.
