Lake Pinaroo, Sturt National Park

Michael John

Oatley, Australia

Artist's Description

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.
