4WD tours from William Creek

Does anyone know if there are any 4WD tours to Lake Eyre available from William Creek? Or 4WD hire? Any information would be really helpful.

William Creek is a hotel and about 5 houses in the middle of nowhere on the old Ghan train line, long since closed.. There is a person who operates a light aircraft for rlight over Lake Eyre.

You would have to get there first.

Check the William Creek Hotel site for info

There are tours to William Creek and Lake Eyre from Coober Pedy - but you are much better off taking a flight as you dont really get mcuh perspective of the lake from the ground.

Thanks for the info bigw and nozzie. I'm flying in to William Creek and will be staying there a day or two. I really want to photograph a sunset/sunrise over Lake Eyre so I'm looking for a way to get there from William Creek.

Do you have any suggestions?

Paul instead of continually posting here (and getting no answer) try sending a personal message to Marianne - but I suspect she/he has been and gone.
