Lake Eyre is the largest salt lake in the Southern Hemisphere and the lowest natural point in Australia. On the rare occasions that it fills, it is also the largest lake in Australia.

The views of Lake Eyre are equally spectacular when in flood with surrounding wildflowers and birds or in drought with it’s brilliant white crust and desert wildlife. Away from the lake, the National Park features red sand dunes and mesas, stone-strewn tablelands and salty claypans.

Follow in the footsteps of famous explorer John McDouall Stuart and the old Ghan Railway. See the sights of the Oodnadatta Track. There’s nothing like heading bush and experiencing some of the harshest country in Australia.
