Oodnadatta Track ~  ~ Images of Australia
The smallest town in South Australia is William Creek, surrounded by one of Australia’s largest cattle properties, Anna Creek Station. From the junction of William Creek, the 202 km travel north along the Oodnadatta Track to Oodnadatta, follows the ancient Aboriginal trade route that is famous for it’s permanent springs.

William Creek can be accessed from four different routes:

  • via Oodnadatta, from the north along the Oodnadatta Track.
  • via Marree, from the south along the Oodnadatta Track.
  • via Roxby Downs, from the south via Borefield Road, joining the Oodnadatta Track.
  • via Coober Pedy, from the west along William Creek Road.

    Currently all these roads are unsealed and are usually well maintained making them suitable for 2 wheel drive vehicles, however this can change quickly due to weather conditions.

Camel trains and cattlemen passed this way, as did the Overland Telegraph Line from Port Augusta to Darwin (completed in 1870) and the original "Ghan" narrow gauge railway. Many them have no doubt stopped at one of William Creek’s main attraction, the unique bush pub, that is still serving travellers today.
