General Information about Lake Eyre

Lake Eyre is the lowest point in Australia, at approximately 15m below sea level, and, on the rare occasions that it fills, it is the largest lake in Australia. Normally dry, Lake Eyre is an extensive 'salt sink', deriving its mineralisation from countless years of floodwater evaporation. Vegetation is generally sparse with cane grass and scattered clumps of mulga and acacias on the red sand dunes.

Day visitor access to Lake Eyre north is available via a Public Access Route through Muloorina Station. Good views of Lake Eyre south are available from the Oodnadatta Track. The park remains largely inaccessible and travellers must be well prepared. Tracks are suitable for four wheel drive vehicles only and reserves of fuel, water and food must be carried. The best time to visit is between April and October.

Lake Eyre National Park is one of the most remote and potentially dangerous places in Australia.
