William Creek Map

William Creek is the smallest settlement in South Australia with a permanent population of 6 humans and a dog.

Located 165kms from the nearest neighbouring town of Coober Pedy, William Creek sits in the centre of Australia's (and the world's) biggest cattle station, Anna Creek Station (SK Kidman).

It's the halfway point along the ruggedly famous Oodnadatta Track, the most historical track in Australia’s early outback development.

William Creek is the hub of Wrightsair Commercial Aircraft Charter and Scenic Flights to Lake Eyre, The Painted Hills and beyond. Lake Eyre is the 3rd largest salt lake in the world, and is the lowest point below sea level in Australia (-15M).

Most of all, William Creek is home to the historical William Creek hotel (circa 1935) - the old railway siding on the original Ghan railway line. 

William Creek is in the middle of nowhere, on the way to somewhere, outback South Australia.

Your ideal overnight stop, with fantastic outback pub fare and thirst quenching drinks, William Creek is a culinary epicentre specialising in outback steaks.
