Australia’s largest salt lake, Lake Eyre/Kati Thanda has a catchment area from three states and the Northern Territory. The north lake itself is huge, covering an area 144km long and 77km wide, and at 15.2 metres below sea level, it is the lowest point in Australia. The south lake is 64km long and 24km wide. Flood waters cover the lake once every eight years on average. However, the lake has only filled to capacity three times in the last 160 years.The best time to visit Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park is between April and October. Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park is located 60km east of William Creek and 95km north-west of Marree. The park is only accessible by 4WD vehicles and there is now only 1 public access route that leads to the shore - this is the Halligan Bay PAR. The former Level Post Bay PAR has been closed and has remained that way for some years and is unlikely to be reopened in the future. You should travel in convoy and carry reserves of fuel, water and food. From William Creek: Travel south-east on the Oodnadatta Track for 7km to the access track to Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park. Travel along this track to Halligan Bay Point via Armistice Bore and ABC Bay. This public access route is closed from 1 December to 15 March.Check the latest Desert Parks Bulletin and the road condition report for current access before you leave.
