Millstream Chichester National Park

We acknowledge the Yindjibarndi and Ngarluma people as the Traditional Custodians of Millstream Chichester National Park.

Millstream Chichester National Park covers nearly 200,000 hectares around the Fortescue River. The National Park is packed with stunning experiences such as lush flora and fauna with deep gorges and natural pools. Millstream Chichester is the home of the Warlu (the Serpent) and offers some of the best camping opportunities in the Pilbara.

A must-see attraction within the park is the popular swimming spot Python Pool. Several BBQ spots and walking trails are scattered throughout the park.


Python Pool. A stunning spot for a swim in a cool refreshing rock pool against the backdrop ancient, rugged cliffs. Python Pool is easily accessible by road.

Deep Reach Pool. Located in Millstream and sacred to the Yindjibarndi people. A peaceful place for a tranquil swim. As a sign of respect, please ensure noise is kept to a minimum.

Jirndawurrunha Pool. Swimming is not permitted at Jirndawurrunha Pool or surrounding streams because of this site’s deep cultural significance to the Yinjibarndi people.
