Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre is a protected area in the Australian state of South Australia. It is located 697 km north of the state capital of Adelaide. It is the nation's largest salt lake and the lowest point on the mainland. Most of the time the lake is dry but occasional floods bring wildlife and colour to the lake.

Travel Information

Flights over the lake can be had from William Creek, the nearest point to the Lake that offers this service. Other points of origin include Marree and Wilpena Pound Resort. To see a lot more of what South Australia offers, driving from Adelaide to William Creek is recommended, ideally in a 4WD vehicle. Roads can be very rough or sandy.

The best time to visit Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park is between April and October. If summer monsoon rains provide floodwaters locally or from Queensland, you are more likely to see water in the lake during these cooler months. In summer, temperatures in the area can soar to more than 50 degrees Celsius. Travelling in this region in that heat is dangerous.
