Information

Level Post Bay was named by Warren Bonython in 1949 when he used a "level post" to monitor water levels in the "great flood of 1949 - 50". At or near this point the water reaches the greatest depth when Lake Eyre North floods, as occurred during 1974 – 75, when a water depth of 6.6m was recorded.

The Level Post Bay Track has been a popular PAR (public access route) enabling visitors to drive to this point. However it was closed to the public due to a dispute over the grading of the track.

In July 2022. Track was opened for shoreline access but was closed after 4 months.
Update: August 2023: Track remains closed.
