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

Fertile soil, good rains and town's location as the rail head led to the development of the district as a centre for prime sheep and wool.

From the 1880s to the 1970s the town was a bustling hive of activity. Since that time, farm amalgamations and better road transport meant that many of the businesses moved out of the town. Today, Hallett is being revitalised, with a gallery, tourist park, camping area, and new investment.

Hallett is at the heart of Ngadjury country, and there are still scar trees, petroglyphs and fresh water springs to be seen around the district.

Visitors are welcome to make use of the town's community swimming pool, play ground, and recreation ground - just ask at the Minimart.
