Postman Pat for a day: Coober Pedy, SA It’s not quite in the same league as our most famous Outback postman (Tom Kruse and his trusty Leyland Badger, during the mail run from Marree to Birdsville in the mid 1900’s). However, you too can come close to experiencing the true harshness as well as some of the history of the early days of remote mail delivery and be Postman Pat for a day on ‘The Mail Run Tour’. A true Outback experience with a difference, the tours start from Coober Pedy and travel North to Oodnadatta, along the Oodnadatta Track and parts of the Old Ghan Railway before stopping for a drink at the iconic William Creek Hotel. You’ll also travel through the world’s longest man made structure – more commonly known as the Dingo Fence – as well as one of the world’s largest cattle stations – Anna Creek Station. It’s a 620km Outback trip with a difference. The mail run leaves every Tuesday and Thursday.

YOU’LL ALSO TRAVEL THROUGH THE WORLD’S LONGEST MAN MADE STRUCTURE – MORE COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE DINGO FENCE – AS WELL AS ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST CATTLE STATIONS – ANNA CREEK STATION.
