Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Russian Jack Memorial is a popular tourist attraction in Halls Creek which captivates visitors with a story of camaraderie and selfless bravery. Legend has it that Russian Jack pushed his sick mate for many miles in a wheelbarrow to seek medical attention. Photograph the charming statue which stands outside the town’s shire office.

Jack Jugarie was a well-respected Jaru Elder who had worked as a police tracker at the hospital and as an Aboriginal Police Aide. In 1997 at the age of 70, he took part in a 305-kilometre race from Halls Creek to Wyndham. He used his knowledge of country and the stars as his navigational tools and to find food and water and his feat is commemorated in a statue at the park outside the Visitors Centre.
