Russian Jack’s Restaurant
The Halls Creek motel’s Russian Jack’s Restaurant serves hearty fare in the midst of the spectacular Kimberley region and the motel’s landscaped gardens. The bar is a great way to meet the locals, and perhaps you’ll hear the tale about Russian Jack, a pioneer from the 1885 gold rush who pushed his ill friend 300 kilometres to safety in a wheelbarrow. A memorial was erected in his honour and to symbolise the many pioneers of this spectacular, yet brutal landscape.
