Depart Hawker for William Creek via Lake Torrens, BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam Project (shortly to be the site the biggest hole in the world !), the remote and unique Painted Hills, then on to the William Creek Pub were we can stop for a quick cuppa and a stretch of the legs.
After our rest stop at William Creek, we continue west and north over the vast expanse of Lake Eyre along the Warburton Groove to the Warburton River mouth and follow the verdant Warburton River for 40 miles before tracking north east direct to Birdsville via the remote & arid Simpson Desert. See country rarely seen or even visited by vehicles or tourists.
We stay overnight in the famous outback town of Birdsville and you can check out the Pub!
Next day we depart Birdsville for Innamincka via Goyder’s lagoon and Coongie Lakes, an unforgettable visual experience.
After the Coongie Lakes we land at The Dig Tree on Nappa Merrie Station, the iconic memorial to Burke and Wills’ ill-fated trip across our vast dry continent. Contemplate their journey and desperation as you visit this famous Australian memorial tree on the banks of The Cooper Creek (actually just on the Queensland side). After a quick cuppa and a biscuit there, follow The Cooper Creek into Innamincka for a lunch stop at the pub.
After lunch at the pub in Innamincka we then depart for Hawker where our flight path takes us out over remote desert and then the full length or the rugged and magnificent Northern Flinders Ranges before ending the trip by overflying the iconic Wilpena Pound prior to descending to Hawker.
