Situated north of the Gawler Ranges, the park protects a large saline lake system surrounded by red sand hills. The park includes Australia’s third largest salt lake, Lake Gairdner (plus Lake Everard and Lake Harris), which contains over 200 islands, in some parts of the lake the salt layer can be up to one meter thick!
The glistening, white, salt, surface is surrounded by the red foothills of the Gawler Ranges.
Camping is free in this park, you do not need to book online.
Self-sufficient bush camping is available in the Waltumba campground located on the eastern side of the lake.
Waltumba is a great spot for camping and is set amongst the Western Myall trees on the edge of the lake with fantastic views overlooking the lake and onto the Gawler Ranges. A walking trail leading from the campground and day visit area will take you up onto a hill overlooking the lake. The trail is well formed and it is a moderate hike.
The campground is accessible to vehicles with high ground clearance.
