At the time of the Halls Creek gold rush the nearest port for supplies was and the export of gold from Halls Creek was Wyndham.

Originally by necessity the horse track from Wyndham to Old Halls Creek closely followed the important watering points.

From Wyndham the track wound south through Turkey Creek and Mabel Downs. The old Stone Hut ruins on Sophie Downs was the last stop to rest the horses before the final leg to Old Halls Creek.
