Day 10:  Oodnadatta Track - William Creek & Painted Hills - Coober Pedy 
After breakfast this morning we depart Marree and follow the legendary Oodnadatta Track to the tiny outback settlement of William Creek. The track itself is steeped in history, natural wonders and rich cultural heritage and is regarded as one of the best outback drives in Australia. It follows a traditional Aboriginal trading route and, because of the availability of water, was chosen for the Central Australian Railway, the original route of the Old Ghan. This morning we stop off at Coward Springs siding, a fully restored and heritage-listed railway site displaying history and remnants of the ‘Old Ghan’. Arrive into William Creek for lunch at the iconic William Creek Hotel before enjoying a special one hour scenic flight over the ‘Painted Hills’. This rocky outcrop of large and small hills, which emerge suddenly out of a flat desert landscape, can only be accessed by air due to its fragility and natural beauty. This afternoon we trek on to Coober Pedy and spend the next two nights at the award-winning Desert Cave Hotel. (B,L,D) 

Day 11: Coober Pedy Sightseeing 
Due to the heat in summer, much of Coober Pedy's population live underground. The town is known as the opal capital of the world, supplying 70% of the world’s precious opals. This morning we enjoy a guided tour of the Umoona Opal Mine, where you're also free to do some fossicking of our own. In the afternoon, head out to the Breakaways Reserve and admire the colourful low hills separated from the Stuart Range. We then return to the Desert Cave Hotel to explore its many galleries.

After a tour through the region, we’ll visit a local winery for a relaxed lunch and wine tastings, a great way to wind down as we approach the end of the adventure. This afternoon, we arrive back into Adelaide and check in to the Stamford Grand Hotel in Glenelg. We enjoy our final dinner together at the hotel restaurant. (B,L,D)
