Skeen Pool is one of the semi permanent water holes the dot the length of the Sturt Creek north of Billiluna. The majority of this land now sits in the Sturt Creek Station, part of the Kidman empire still. Skeen is reached by taking an unmarked detour of 500 metres from the Old Canning Stockroute north of Billiluna. The abundance of water in many fine pools was what led the early explorers and settlers to the area with the likes of Warburton, Hahn, Rudall and Buchanan all using its length to base forays into the harsh Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts to the south. In 1897, David Carnegie traced its route before launching into the Tanami on his return journey to Coolgardie.
