Located in the heart of the Australian Outback, William Creek is a small town that is often described as the 'Gateway to Lake Eyre'.
Despite its small size, William Creek is a town with plenty of character and charm. Visitors can explore the town's historic pub, chat with the locals, and learn about the town's rich history and heritage.
The Wonders of Lake Eyre
Lake Eyre is the largest lake in Australia, and a natural wonder that is not to be missed. It is a vast Salt Lake that is surrounded by stunning landscapes and home to a unique ecosystem of plants and animals. Visitors can take guided tours of the lake, go on scenic flights, or even explore the lakebed itself (when conditions allow).
We charted a small plane and was taken aloft by our superb pilot Sarah for an unforgettable flight over the lake. From the air the scale of the lake becomes apparent – a salt pan the size of Belgium. Our flight took us over the southern end of North Lake Eyre, from arid stock pens onto the blinding salt lake itself.
My aim was to capture some of the abstract patterns formed by the receding waters, scenes akin to another planet.
