Whim Creek

The town of Whim Creek is located between Karratha and Port Hedland or two and a half days’ drive north of Perth.

In 1887, with the discovery of gold and copper, the town was born. In its heyday Whim Creek sported two hotels, a blacksmith, a general store, stables and a horse track, plus many more local businesses. After nearly a century, mining activity ended in 1986.

Today, with the advent of time and many cyclones, the hotel is the only building to remain standing. However, the history, character and feelings of a bygone era are kept alive through this grand old Lady. Photos and mining implements, depicting the early days, are displayed and give insight into the town’s fascinating history.

Whim Creek has all the necessities on hand, including petrol and diesel, with the restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hotel, caravan park and backpacker accommodation is also available.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
