Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre National Park

Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre National Park is 60km east of William Creek and can be accessed from the Oodnadatta Track by 4WD via Halligan Bay or Level Post Bay public access routes and only with a Desert Parks Pass.

Technically, the largest lake in Australia, Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre, spans an area 144km long and 77km wide. It only occasionally fills with water, and its salt-encrusted surface shimmers a spectacular white under a clear, outback sky. One of the best ways to appreciate Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre is from the air which, when dry, provides expansive, breathtaking views of the inland waterways.

Camping is permitted at Halligan Point Campground only (no facilities), while outside the park, Muloorina Station (via Marree) has campgrounds with toilets and some facilities. Permission is sought in advance.
