The Homestead Visitor Centre is open daily between 8am and 4pm. It is not always staffed but rangers frequently visit as they are stationed here. There is an intercom telephone at the front counter to the Ranger’s Office but it is not always attended. In an emergency, call at the Ranger’s house. The Homestead Trail explores station life from the 1930s at Millstream through the eyes of a 12 year old boy. It is an easy 750m return walk. Allow 30 minutes.
The Murlamunyjunha Trail links the Homestead with Crossing Pool and the Fortescue River. Trailside signs reveal traditional Yinjibarndi plant use. It is a moderately easy 6km return walk. Allow two hours.
The final 700m to and from Crossing Pool can be seasonally closed between November and April due to flooding.
