Things to do in Julia Creek

Julia Creek lies proudly in the heart of the Outback. The region around Julia Creek has traditionally been utilised for sheep and cattle grazing using the Great Artesian Basin to sustain primary productions and the town water supplies.

The distinctive wine glass shaped water tower in Julia Creek acts to cool the artesian water and at 30 metres tall, assists with water pressure.  It is a magnificent site to see!

Julia Creek is home to the endangered Julia Creek Dunnart (Sminthopsis douglasi) which is an extremely shy nocturnal hunter found on the Mitchell grass downs.

There is so much more to this beautiful town with a big heart. Come and unearth the understated beauty for yourself.
