Lake Hart Rest Area

Rest Area Overnight - South Australia


This free overnight rest area is large and set off the road.  It is unsealed and has covered picnic tables.  There are plenty of tracks here to enjoy some privacy.  There are fantastic views to be had here especially at sunset.  

Oh my! what a beautiful place this is out in the middle of nowhere. We came across it one morning after staying overnight at the Pimba Roadhouse (near Woomera) only 40km or so to the south. Wished we had just refuelled at Pimba and driven that little bit further. You need to be self-contained but dont miss it if you are travelling the Stuart Highway.

This should be on every travelers bucket list. No toilets but amazingly beautiful . The walk to the crunchy, white, pink,charcoal salt Lake is a must.

This is a repeat (plural) stay for us because it is so beautiful. Level surface, glorious sunrise and peaceful outlook. It can be very crowded but not tonight, border restrictions have caused less traffic. Some traffic noise but not enough to disturb the serenity.

Top spot for an overnighter, about a dozen vans in tonight but plenty of room for all sizes of RVs . Nice view over the salt lake and firm level site
