Lake Pinaroo, Sturt National Park by Michael John

Lake Pinaroo, Sturt National Park by 

Lake Pinaroo (Fort Grey Basin) is located in far the north-west of NSW, near Fort Grey, 24km from Cameron Corner. It was listed as a Ramsar site in 1996 and is considered a wetland of international importance.

This image shows the skeletons of many dead trees which have drowned in the water. The lake is often dry but fills up after periods of heavy rain.

Thanks to its size and capacity to retain water, Lake Pinaroo plays a crucial role in the survival of many species of plants and animals.

Sturt National Park is in the arid north-western corner of New South Wales, Australia. Established in 1972, the park is named after explorer Charles Sturt.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
