China Wall is a natural vein of sub-vertical white quartz rising up to 6 metres above the surrounding country in places. This striking formation transects the country for many kilometres, rising high out of the ground and then disappearing back into the earth again.

Scientists believe the wall was formed when the rock surrounding the much harder and resistant quartz was weathered and eroded away. Aboriginal people have a different account of how this formation came about. China Wall is located 6 km from Halls Creek accessed off the Duncan Highway.

It is important visitors shut gates as the access road is through a pastoral lease. The entrance to China Wall is still on the sealed road. The 1.5 km through the gate is unsealed however smooth enough for a 2WD to travel.
