William Creek - South Australia

William Creek - Somewhere….in the middle of nowhere.

William Creek

There is so much to experience in Outback South Australia and William Creek is in the centre of it all.

From the salt lake of Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre to the colourful Anna Creek Painted Hills, from remote cattle stations to the thermal Dalhousie Springs - Outback South Australia is more diverse than you may think!

A spectacular scenic flight over the iconic Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre or Anna Creek Painted Hills is the best way to appreciate these unique sights and can be booked on arrival in William Creek or we recommend pre-booking to avoid disappointment.

William Creek Hotel

The William Creek Hotel is a destination in itself. Mementos from travellers around the world adorn the walls of the iconic pub and historic memorabilia are dotted around the main restaurant. Have a beer in this famed Outback pub - and tick the William Creek Hotel off your bucket list!

Star Gazing

With virtually no light polution, stable air, and 360° surround views of the night sky, William Creek Hotel offers some of the best outback star gazing in Australia.

The Outback is one of the best places to explore the galaxy of stars in the night sky. Offering low humidity, mostly cloudless nights and minimal unnatural light, William Creek allows you to view stars and planets like you've never seen them before. Take a walk around town to find your spot to take it all in. ⭐️🌙

Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park was named as one of the top five spots and darkest locations in South Australia to star gaze. Read more about it on the Environment SA website.
