Dalhousie Springs in Australia
A tourist selfdrive tourist guide and travel information

Witjira National Park (Dalhousie Springs)

It's suited to well-prepared travellers and located off the Stuart Highway, which runs north-south through Australia. Go four-wheel-driving on one of the defined public access roads and visit Dalhousie Springs, Australia's largest complex of artesian springs. The need to protect and rehabilitate the 70 or so thermal springs in the Dalhousie complex was one of the main reasons for the establishment of Witjira National Park. The springs are home to unique species of fish such as the Lake Eyre Hardy-head and other rare aquatic life. They are also a haven for birdlife.

Dalhousie Homestead Ruins sit prettily amongst the palms which were planted very early in its history. A stop here is a must, since there are a number of buildings and other remnants of a once fine outback station.

Dalhousie Springs

Arriving at the Dalhousie Springs camping area, we were shocked to find a huge number of campers. We were forced to set up camp outside of the designated area. There are good facilities here, with toilets, showers and rain water tanks. The Dalhousie Springs pool is a wonderful place to swim.

William CreekWilliam Creek

Along the Oodnadatta Track, about halfway from Oodnadatta to Maree and halfway from Adelaide to Alice Springs

Population 10, William Creek is one of the smallest towns in Australia and situated on the world's largest working cattle station - 24,000 square kilometre Anna Creek Station, part of the S Kidman & Co empire.

If you are in William Creek chances are you are driving the Oodnadatta Track. It passes straight through the town.

Across the road is a little museum established by the William Creek Progress Association, and the friendly folk at the William Creek Store (take the time to learn the intriguing story of the Burtt Stone). Other highlights are charter flights over Lake Eyre, a 30-minute walk along the railway line to Breakfast Time Creek and camel safaris operated by Explore the Outback Camel Safaris. Every April the town plays host to the William Creek races.

Heading north from Coward Springs you will pass ruins marking the old Strangways Siding and Strangways Telegraph Station, once one of 11 repeater stations boosting communications on the Overland Telegraph Line between Adelaide and Darwin. Soon after the gibber plains make way for a burst of red dunes and finally the saltbush flat of William Creek.

Visit the famous "William Creek Hotel" (South Australia No.1 Outback Hotel). Visit the famous "William Creek Hotel" (South Australia No.1 Outback Hotel). This outback pub sports a bar where tourists and business cards abound, a restaurant, purchasing snacks, fuel station, tyre repair shop - try to ring ahead, budget accommodation, camping grounds.. A outback Golf Course exists to the west of the Hotel last we checked.

Oodnadatta

Oonadatta roadhouseThe famed outback town of Oodnadatta is a must-see for visitors who want to get 'off the beaten track'. Stop for a cold drink at the Pink Roadhouse, which is a mine of information for travellers heading into the Witjira National Park and the Simpson Desert. The new facilities at the Oodnadatta racecourse are popular for large celebrations with campground, kitchen, bar and toilet facilities.

Oodnadatta township is where you can stock up with supplies of food and fuel. The friendly roadhouse staff are very helpful with maps and advice on road conditions for the Simpson Crossing.

The town has a heritage-listed sandstone railway station that has been converted into a museum and provides great tales of yesteryear. Oodnadatta took its name from the Aboriginal word Utnadata which means 'blossom of the mulga'.

Travellers venturing into the outback can check road conditions with Transport SA on 1300 361 033.
