William Creek to Coober Pedy

Changing the flat tyre

William Creek is a tiny town with 6 inhabitants and a dog. It is in the middle of the largest cattle station in Australia, Anna Creek station.

We had been warned the night before that there were a few bull dust traps and we might not get the bus through. A couple of road trains had to be pulled out. Wherever there is a dangerous part of the gravel road, red flags are put on the side to warn travellers. But before we could leave William Creek we had to change a flat tyre on the bus.

Marree to William Creek

Marree is where the Oodnadatta and Birdsville Tracks intersect. We headed west on the Oodnadatta Track to William Creek which is the place for flying to Lake Eyre using WrightsAir.
