About Homestead Walk, Millstream Chichester NP
The Homestead Trail explores station life from the 1930s at Millstream through the eyes of a 12 year old boy. As you walk into the tropical glades you come across a series of permanent crystal clear pools that rise out of the Fortescue River floodplains. The water is so clear that numerous freshwater fish seem to be swimming in air. On top is a watery garden of water lillies. It looks like a scene out of a Monet painting.
Most of the palms are of the introduced date variety. There is one exception, a type of livistona palm found only in the north-west of Western Australia. The well preserved Millstream Homestead was once part of a vast pastoral station. Now it is an informative information centre telling visitors about the natural and cultural wonders of this beautiful region.
