Hallett is a small, friendly town where people are always happy to stop and chat.

Located only 20 minutes from Burra on the way to the Flinders Ranges and Broken Hill Hallett is ideally situated as the hub between the Heysen (walking), Mawson (cycling) and the Dares Hill (driving) trails. 

Today, Hallett is being revitalised, with a gallery, tourist park, and camping area.
