Junction of Halligan Bay PAR and Oodnadatta Track. Please note that the PAR is closed from 1st Dec to 15 March.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. The terrain all around appears burnt out but on closer inspection you realise that it's not the aftermath of a holocaust but strange natural colours of the landscape. Gibber stones look black as coal or a deep brown depending on the direction of the sun. As soon as you turn left and begin the 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).There is a toilet, picnic shelter and National Parks campground at the end at Halligan Bay Point. See separate Place listing for details. Bookings are required if camping. No self registration station.
