- On request
The Mail Run travels over diverse country, including gibber plains, red sand hills, and 120 million year old inland sea beds. Stop at Oodnadatta, an outpost which thrived when the transcontinental railway reached there in 1891. At William Creek have a drink at the legendary bush pub or at the Dingo Cafe with its memorabilia and old photos of the area. This once important railway town is also known for having Australia's first solar powered telephone. Follow in the footsteps of explorer John McDouall Stuart and see outback fauna and flora. The mailmen are fully accredited and experienced Outback operators, who have lived and worked in this desert environment for most of their lives. They are well known to the locals and conduct the run twice weekly. They have that typical friendly easy going nature of Outback people and always have time for a yarn and a good laugh. See historical ruins, desert wildlife, brilliant gibber landscapes, and marvel at the colourful sunset and clear star-studded Outback skies.
