Outback experience - from Adelaide to Coober Pedy, Lake Eyre, Flinders Ranges

Lake Eyre, located 700km north of Adelaide, is the largest salt lake in the Southern Hemisphere — so large that it crosses the borders of three states. It is the lowest natural point in Australia (15m below sea level), and is also, on the rare occasions that it fills, the largest lake in Australia at 9500 m2.

Come and see this beautiful outback marvel in the comfort of a modern 4WD vehicle!
