The China Wall is located just a few kilometres out of Halls Creek in north eastern Western Australia.
It is an extraordinary piece of geology where the harder narrow band of quartz stands above the softer rock around it. This piece you are looking at however is just a small part of a band stretching for hundreds of kilometres. In fact, no one knows how far it runs but, at this site, if you keep your eyes open, you can see and walk to two parts of it separated by a few hundred metres.
To do this you will have to walk the lawn of the Apocalypse (spinifex) but you can get some nice photographs.
However, should you head further east on Duncan Road you will come across another part of the wall. I did this, rather unexpectedly, on my way to Sawtooth Gorge, just before sunset.
I hope you enjoy the pictures because I had to walk over a lot more spinifex the last time!
