To get to Lake Eyre is bone jarring experience, the distance from Noontana to Farina
is about 230km about the same distance to Lake Eyre 450 km,the last  65 km to the lake is cruel on tires
but the view. almost moonscape type of view.
Lake Eyre is a salt lake you can canoe on the lake we missed the water by 2 days.
Enjoy

It really is a desert-scape.  Does a lake actually form in the wet season?

The Lake Eyre basin (/ɛər/ [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helpronunciation_respelling_key]AIR[/url]) is a drainage basin that covers just under one-sixth of all Australia. It is the largest endorheic basin in Australia and amongst the largest in the world, covering about 1,200,000 square kilometres (463,323 sq mi), including much of inland Queensland, large portions of South Australia and the Northern Territory, and a part of western New South Wales. The basin is also one of the largest, least-developed arid zone basins with a high degree of variability anywhere. It supports only about 60,000 people and has no major irrigation, diversions or flood-plain developments. Low density grazing that sustains a large amount of wildlife is the major land use, occupying 82% of the total land within the basin. The Lake Eyre basin of precipitation (rain water) to a great extent geographically overlaps the Great Artesian Basin underneath.


I wanted to canoe on the lake but the timing was off by 2 days

The sheer size boggles the mind.

It does have somewhat of a lunarscape appearance to it.  Unique area for sure.
