Challenges of Isolation
We aim to impress upon the visitor the challenges of isolation and transportation by telling stories of Cobb and Co, the Great Northern Railway and School of the Air.
Queensland Police Jail House
The old Queensland Police Jail cells from Julia Creek have been recycled and used onsite to house our auditorium "Reflections at the Creek"
At the Creek
‘At the Creek' is a multi-award winning visitor information centre and tourist attraction in Julia Creek. Throughout the Centre there are several interactive audio and visual tools to help you experience what it is like to live, work and play in McKinlay Shire and Julia Creek.
A new addition to the centre is ‘Beneath the Creek' which explores the underground features that have shaped our land through an interactive floor and touch screens.
