Easy ! just drive to William Creek and choose your plane..all parked nicely beside the runway/road ..and pay at the pub..no Jetstar or Virgins out here..!!

Thanks guys
Am planning on heading up the main road and I guess that William creek is about 340k from Woomera.

Wonder if available at Coober Pedy??????????

Have to be in Alice by a set date.

Cheers

Hi Graham,
If you check out Wrightsair website you will find that they have flights from Coober Pedy or will customise it to suit your needs. They are very obliging.
Enjoy your trip.

Hi Graham

It will cost a fair bit more from Coober Pedy as you will have an extra hour of flying time but you could include the Painted Desert on the way over to Lake Eyre. Ideal situation is to see Painted Desert when the sun is very low in the late afternoon so it may not fit in with your Lake Eyre flight.

I think if you wanted a flight on Saturday you probably needed to book it a week ago. Phone up Wrightsair now.

You book with Trevor Wright at Wright Air at William Creek. But if you don't book ahead you could easily find you are in a que of people waiting several days to get a flight

But the flight is the only way to experience Lake Eyre at its rare best

Thanks Folks for the info.

However due to time restraints havent got time to divert to William Creek.

May have to give it miss as bought a new camera lens today for $950 so minister of finance has shut up shop for a while.

LOL
May see if bank has reopened when I get to Coober Pedy.


Cheers
