Lake Eyre - Lowest and driest point and largest salt lake of Australia

Lake Eyre - Lowest and driest point and largest salt lake of Australia

Its official name is Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre. It is at 15 m / 49 ft below sea level and when the monsoon appears it also becomes the largest salt lake in Australia. When this happens, the show is unique. The landscape, usually arid, filled with waterfowl, wildflowers explode and adjacent vegetation turns green. Therefore, although this is not common, Lake Eyre is considered an oasis in the Australian outback desert. Its basin covers an area of approximately 1,000,000 km2 / 620,000 mi2. It is located in the driest part of the country, being an enclave of culture for the original aboriginals of the region, the Arabana. However when it is dry its panoramic views remain just as impressive as the salt crystals reflect sunlight, turning the surface pink.

What else is there
The best place to see Lake Eyre is from the air. Many local operators offer scenic flights. And if you prefer to see it from the mainland, do so from Halligan Bay. Nearby, you'll find the Simpson Desert and the cities of Oodnadatta and Coober Pedy.

Notes
The best time to conquer this Mostpoint is between April and October. The park is 60 km / 37 mi east of William Creek (Oodnadatta Track) adapted to 4x4. Take one only if you are an expert driver. And remember to bring fuel, food and water.
