4WD track. Closed 1 Dec to 15 March. The first 30 km is wider and easy driving. Last 30 km crosses various breakaways with a few gentle slopes and curves. Many people do the return trip from William Creek in a day - perhaps a bit of a rush. Relax more by camping at the bay and take in sunset, sunrise and the glory of the heavens. Bookings required - no self registration.The track to Halligan Bay is marked 4WD (mainly because of large bulldust potholes, soft sand, and claypans) and takes you 40km to a Y junction at the ugliest section of Lake Eyre you'll see. As soon as you begin the final 10km out to Halligan Bay you leave the stark black scenery behind and suddenly you are surrounded in soft pastels and salmon coloured sand. The sand is soft so consider deflating your tyres if you get stuck. (Don't become a statistic out here. People have died because they weren't prepared).
