The scar of an ancient catastrophic event, Wolfe Creek Crater and its surrounds are astonishing from a bird’s eye view.
Departing Halls Creek, your pilot takes you South, crossing the edge of the Albert Edward Range. Much of the rugged terrain below is part of extensive and active pastoral properties. You will learn many tales and history of the region from your experienced pilot during your journey. Passing over Ruby Plains Station the flight enters the expanse of the Great Sandy Desert, where two rivers weave their way across the desert like life-lines, and in the distance the lonely shape of Wolfe Creek Crater seems to erupt from the desert floor. Following numerous orbits of the crater and allowing for extensive photo opportunities, a course is set Northward, passing overhead significant features such as; Saw Tooth Gorge, Black Elvire River, Palms Spring oasis, Ruby Queen and Mt Bradley gold mines. China Wall is also showcased on your return journey - a lengthy vein of exposed Quartz, seemingly divides the Old Halls Creek Township and present day Halls Creek.
