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 route traverses typical gibber plains and sandy rises before running along the northeast shore of Lake Eyre South, along the Goyder Channel and terminating at Level Post Bay in the Madigan Gulf of Lake Eyre North.

The drive is 51km on a 4WD track from Muloorina Homestead, which is 50km NW of Marree.
There is no camping at Level Post Bay - although visitors may use the serviced camping site at the Frome Creek Waterhole near Muloorina Homestead. The camping fee is donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

No other services are provided here. Please ensure you have adequate food and water for your trip, and are equipped with a UHF radio for contact with surrounding stations (channel 30, or channel 7 repeater), or satellite phone in case of breakdown. Stay on the track and do not attempt to drive onto the lake surface. Driving on the Lake surface is an offence and is dangerous.
