The Lakew is a NP. IMHO you do need a Desert Pass.

The camping at Muloorina is great, huge wetlands from a flowing bore and great swimming. Birds everywhere.
The camping fee was via a Honersty box on site with proceeds to RFDS.
As for Lake Eyre, It was my understanding that you only needed the desert pass if you were camping. Give the SA NP an email

Enjoy. its a wonderfull part of the world

Munny - the answer to your question is on our Oodnadatta Trek Notes and there is more information about the Desert Parks Pass on our Permits Pag which is also linked from within every trek note on the site.ExplorOz

Hi Munny,
If you can, stop overnight at Farina. Great little spot not used by great mobs of people. Top spot to look around in the ruins. Hot shower thanks to a donkey heater, plenty of delivered fire wood, all for a few gold coins.
William Creek is also a top spot, the pub is the best, cold beer and plenty of history, take a look at the stuff pinned to the ceiling. Arkaroola is abit of a back track but worth it, or just head to Balcanoona via Copley and Nepabunna, and go for a look at lake Frome if you are ot all laked out. Chambers gorge is worth aget out and walk to look at the Aboriginal carvings, Nuccaleena mine via Glass gorge is a great drive also. When do expect to be going and for how long? There is tones to see still.
You can go via Cooper Pedy, the break aways, the dog fence and William creek and then head Marree, Farina Copley then east.
Cheers ROO to much to see to little time.

Munny the Strezleki track is worth the drive to either Innaminka or turn right a couple of hundred approx kms before yoyget there and head to Camerons corner. Then follow the roadto Broken Hill. There arre NPs in Northern NSW to Camp.

From Broken Hill Head back to SA.

Cheers Phil
