William Creek

William Creek is a tiny outback town, found on the world’s largest cattle station. The 32,500-square-kilometre Anna Creek Station is Australia’s largest pastoral property. Located at the halfway point between Oodnadatta and Marree, the entire town is owned by Trevor Wright from Wrightsair and has its own power supply, as well as cabins and a caravan park.

Built in 1887, the William Creek Hotel is like a giant visitor’s book. Over the years it has been adorned with business cards and hand-scrawled notes. It's also now the only solar-powered town in South Australia, how's that for a claim to fame! View the outdoor museum with a small collection of rocket memorabilia from the Woomera Rocket Range, or take a walk along the Old Ghan Railway line to the bridge at Breakfast Time Creek.

William Creek Hotel is the kind of place where you never know who you're going to meet or the stories you'll swap. Make sure you head into the pub for a feed and a cold drink, this quirky establishment is the heart and soul of William Creek.

For aviation enthusiasts, William Creek runs an annual "Outback Fly-in". An opportunity for plane owners and their mates to gather for awesome local live music, pub trivia, great food, great company, and much more. This experience is bucket-list worthy, and you'll fly away with memories and friends that will last a lifetime. Not one of the lucky ones who owns their own plane to explore our beautiful country? Take to the skies with a scenic flight with Wrights Air and experience Kati-Thanda Lake Eyre.
