Approximately 60 kilometres south of Halls Creek along the Tanami Track is a tiny area called Ruby Plains. The only settlement for miles around, the Ruby Plains Cattle Station is used as a stopping-place on 'The Canning Stock Route', the longest and most remote stock route in the world.

The Tanami Track, which runs through Ruby Plains, goes all the way through to Alice Springs. The 1050 kilometre journey is the most direct and adventurous road route linking Halls Creek to Alice Springs.

Famous Aboriginal artist Rover Thomas, (Julama) painting 'Ruby Plains Killings' is one in a series of eight paintings that illustrate three incidents of conflict that occurred between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians earlier this century in the eastern Kimberley. The work is listed as one of the top 10 most valuable Australian indigenous paintings to be sold in the last 10 years.
