Palm Springs is nestled amongst small hills, just east of the Black Elvire River Crossing on the Duncan Rd. There is a reasonable sized pool, which is boarded by long grass and trees and a few palms. An old weir has been constructed, which cuts the pool into a 2/3 1/3 set up.

The 1/3 being where the spring is located, up the back. In the back 1/3, the water is clear and full of small fish, it is also a good place for a swim any time of the year. In June the water is tepid but warm enough to have an early morning dip.

In the years gone, the Palm Springs area was the local market garden for the old Halls Creek and even today, you can find reminders of this, with banana's growing wild across the road near an old deserted cattle station out camp.

There are nice spots between the road and water hole to camp, however caution is advised with the possibility of crocs in the nearby Black Elvire River and snakes in the long grass around Palm Springs.
