Australia’s largest Salt lake – 144km long & 77km wide and at 15.2 metres below sea level, it is the lowest point in Australia.
This 1,228,000 hectare remote and arid Park includes all of Lake Eyre North and the Tirari Desert, conserving the desert wilderness. Lake Eyre is a dry salt lake that occasionally floods and it was here that the late Sir Donald Campbell once set the world land speed record of 645km/h in a jet-powered car. Access is 7km east of William Creek then 53km east to Halligan Bay or 3km west from Marree and then 90km north. Roads are 4WD only and careful planning and preparation is required. A Desert Parks Pass is required.
