having traversed vast flat plains I was wonderfully delighted to come across Lake Hart's expanse of pure white in a world of red earth. The toilets weren't great but considering where they're located, they're better than nothing.

This was a surprise. We were on our way to Coober Pedy, I had not done any research on trip so coming across this was lovely. There was not much water in it but still looked beautiful. Nice place to stretch the legs.

We camped at the free camp overnight. It gets pretty packed but the sunset and sunrise were amazing. The only downside was the flies were diabolical.

A short walk from the carpark was a well layed out path to a spectacular salt make. We were lucky to be there when the lake had water and flat salt beds.

This was one of the more interesting places along the Stuart Highway and a surprise to come across this very large and impressive lake. There is a good viewing area just off the highway.

Good Day ShellGirl Yes you can camp there, but there are no camping facilities, so you have to be self sufficient, you may also need to confirm where the camping spots are. Have a safe journey and wonderful time.

It's about 30 mins. Not too far away to the rest area.
