WIL­LIAM CREEK, SA

Australian Traveller - - The 100 -

The town is lit­tle more than a tin shed wa­ter­ing hole, but among the colour­ful lo­cal char­ac­ters at the Wil­liam Creek Ho­tel you’ll meet in­trepid trav­ellers who have tack­led great out­back jour­neys to get here; per­haps you’ll be in­spired to em­bark on an ad­ven­ture your­self. Perched on the fringes of Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre Na­tional Park (make sure you take a scenic flight over the lake), Wil­liam Creek feels like it’s a cross­roads for the en­tire out­back. Will you head west to the quirky min­ing opal town of Coober Pedy? North on the epic Ood­na­datta Track all the way to the Red Cen­tre or even on to Dar­win? Or east to Mar­ree and then north on the Birdsville Track to catch the iconic races just over the bor­der in Queens­land? 4WD rec­om­mended! Per­haps, years later, you’ll be back to re­gale oth­ers with your ex­pe­ri­ences at the Wil­liam Creek Ho­tel.
