Halls Creek

First thing on Thursday morning we packed the campervan and headed up to the tourist center in Halls Creek. The population of the town is about 1100. Mostly aboriginal. Mostly unemployed. It's a hard hot place.
The best maintained building in the town was the liquor store.
Outside the tourist center is a statue of a man and a wheelbarrow. They are paying tribute to a man a century ago who pushed a sick mate in a wheelbarrow all the way from Halls Creek to Windam for treatment. I think that's 600 kilometers. I was amazed.
On the drive we listened to John Piper speaking at a Uni Student conference in the UK on Ruth 1.
We arrived at Fitzroy Crossing about 2pm.
