The outback of SA offers a unique and fascinating experience. Base yourself in Coober Pedy and we will help you to discover some of these exciting destinations.

Follow the official mail run route, or the old ‘Ghan’ narrow gauge railway line. Travel into the spectacular Painted Desert or to William Creek through the world’s largest cattle station ‘Anna Creek’ (24,000 sq km), call into Lake Cadibarrawirracanna, Australia’s longest place name and experience just some of what Outback SA has to offer. For those who like to travel to remote areas and like to get a bird’s-eye perspective of the country, a charter flight might appeal. Some charter flight operators also have access to remote areas where permits are usually required. These areas include missions where some of our most famous Aboriginal arts and crafts are produced.
