A grand dinner at the posh William Creek Hotel
Situated 871 kilometres north of Adelaide, (and 14950 kilometres to the south east of Paris), lies the dry and beautiful metropolis of William Creek. Here one sees some hungry, Adelaide mouths, that popped-in from down south, simply to experience the fine cuisine - and tomato sauce in the mandatory squeezy bottle.
It is one of South Australia’s smallest townships (population average 16 people) and lies within the world’s largest pastoral station, Anna Creek, which at its peak was 34, 000 sq. km, almost half the size of Tasmania. The origins of the district date back to March 1863.
