Salt Creek hero and roadhouse owner Adam Stewart says he would have missed the crucial phone call for help if it had come even just five minutes later.

“We wouldn’t have been here,” Adam told Jade Robran on FIVEaa. “We were supposed to be heading out for dinner that night. It was very lucky.”

Adam said over the previous week he’d got to know the youngsters who made the call after one of the backpackers waved them down on the beach.

“I’d just spoken to them for an hour, so I knew they were decent blokes, very ridgy-didge,” he said.

“When you get a phone call like that, with that level of panic in their voices, you know it’s a very serious issue.”
