Halligan Point camping area
The only designated camping area on the lake rim has sites along the western shores of Halligan Point, 71 km east of William Creek. A great place to birdwatch, relax and absorb the dazzling white open spaces. Access is off the Oodnadatta Track just south of William Creek and is suitable for 4WD vehicles only. Note: the last 10 km involves soft-sand driving.

This campsite is located in Lake Eyre National Park
Covering 8000 sq km, this colossal expanse – the world’s largest salt pan – has only filled with water a handful of times in the past 150 years. Its blazing white crust is a sublime, dazzling spectacle and in flood years the surrounding dunes and shorelines come alive with waterbirds, raptors and reptiles. It has recently been returned to the area’s traditional owners, the Arabuna people, after a long court battle. Access to the lake’s edge is restricted to 4WD vehicles via signposted roads from the gateway towns of Marree and William Creek. Conventional vehicles can reach the camping sites at Muloorina Station. No boating is allowed on the lake.
