The Lake Eyre flood is an absolutely amazing sight. Thanks to heavy rainfall in early January, Lake Eyre in South Australia has once again become an ecological marvel which is best viewed from the air.
The 10,000 square kilometre salt pan which is normally dry has filled with flood waters from three rivers flowing into the lake. Up to 183mm of rain fell on the region in just 36 hours which prompted a fast flowing fill of Australia’s largest lake.
This rare event has already attracted thousands of birds to Lake Eyre to breed, some of which are quite rare. The colours and sights of the flooded lake have encouraged tourists from around Australia to travel by road and air to view the spectacular sight. For many, seeing Lake Eyre flood has been on their ‘bucket list’ so now is the best time to tick it off.
It is expected that Lake Eyre will continue to fill for some weeks to come and could be flooded from months.
