Get­ting there

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!

You can fly over Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre with Wright­sair from Wil­liam Creek, Wilpena Pound (in­side the Ikara-Flin­ders Ranges Na­tional Park), Coober Pedy and Dal­housie Springs. wright­sair.com.au
