William Creek is 871 kilometres from Adelaide and 170 kilometres east of Coober Pedy. In good conditions, you can drive the Oodnadatta Track in any vehicle, but we suggest a 4WD with spare tyres, plenty of water, fuel and food. Alternatively, you can drive via Roxby Downs (unsealed after Olympic Dam). Check road conditions at dpti.sa.gov.au/ OutbackRoads. Do not trust Google Maps for driving times and distances!
