Lake Eyre

Lake Eyre, Australia’s largest salt lake, is spectacular year-round and an outback destination with so much more. Enjoy scenic flights over mirage-like salt flats. On rare occasions, floodwaters from Australia’s north transforms the normally dry Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre into a desert oasis, where everything comes to life.
