Information

Wowaljarrow Pool is one of the large semi permanent water holes the dot the length of the Sturt Creek north of Billiluna. The majority of this land now sits in the Sturt Creek Station, part of the Kidman empire still.

The abundance of water in many fine pools was what led the early explorers and settlers to the area with the likes of Warburton, Hahn, Rudall and Buchanan all using its length to base forays into the harsh Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts to the south. In 1897, David Carnegie traced its route before launching into the Tanami on his return journey to Coolgardie.

The amount of bird and animal life supported by these creeks is simply amazing. I could have easily spent a few weeks camped along the banks exploring the pool by kyak or simply walking its banks.
