Savannah Way News reports on different things to do and quirky things to see on one of Australia's Greatest Drives

Savannah Way News says:

One of the Kimberley's great exploration bases, Halls Creek has a fascinating history you can explore on local walks and short drives, not to mention a flight over the Bungle Bungles. Plan your Kimberley adventure at the Halls Creek Visitor Information Centre.

Halls Creek is a busy service town for surrounding pastoralists, Aboriginal communities and travellers exploring northern Western Australia. Halls Creek is also the fourth fastest growing shire within Western Australia.

Situated in the heart of the Kimberley, Halls Creek is the gateway to a range of world renowned natural attractions, including the World Heritage listed Bungle Bungle ranges of Purnululu National Park.

Savannah Way News says about $1 million has been spent over the past couple of years at Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park. Donna and Trezkinn caves have new lighting and steel walkways and the historic Chillagoe Smelters now feature new visitor information shelters and walking tracks to viewing points. Chillagoe Rangers now staff the Chillagoe Hub, selling cave tour tickets between 8.30am and 3pm every day of the year except Christmas Day.

Savannah Way News says the new Burketown Pub is a hub for great fun in the Gulf Savannah's oldest town. Some travellers will remember the old Burketown Hotel, a classic outback icon that sadly burnt down in March 2012. The new facility is a bright and popular social centre offering accommodation and meals.

Savannah Way News says the family owned and operated Lorella Springs Station is one of the great highlights of the Roper Bar road. Leave plenty of time for your stay as there are a million waterfront acres with 1,000 kilometres of tracks, hundreds of kilometres of creeks and rivers, billabongs, gorges, waterfalls and so many things to see.

Savannah Way News says stop in at Heartbreak Hotel at Cape Crawford en route for an inspiring helicopter ride over the Lost City and great hospitality.

Plan your Savannah Way trip to include the infinity pool at Cobbold Gorge, Savannah Way News says. Access to the gorge is by guided tour only. The narrow gorge has majestic, 30-metre sheer walls. A three hour guided tour includes a walk to the grave of pioneer John Corbett and a boat cruise and tour of the gorge.
