Millstream

infoMillstream Info

Millstream is a tropical oasis, an hour and a half's drive southeast of Karratha. Once the tribal meeting place for the Yinjibarndi people, Millstream has become a popular tourist destination with its natural pools, gorges, and surrounding Millstream Chichester National Park.

Originally a pastoral station, the town's old Homestead still stands and serves as an information centre for visitors to the park. Read about the history of the buildings and what life was like on an early pastoral station in this area. Palm and paperbark trees line the pools, providing shady picnic and camping areas.

Spend a night camping in the park at Deep Pool, one of the most picturesque campsites around. Stop for a swim at Python Pool, a perennial waterhole at the base of towering rocks and overhanging gum trees.

A climb to the peak of Mount Herbert, and bushwalking along the trails, is rewarded with unequalled views of the sweeping spinifex plains. Other activities include bird watching, swimming, rafting, canoeing and fishing.
