I was captivated by nature’s modern artwork of the creek beds forming a delta pattern or artery as they flowed into the salt pans of Lake Eyre in the Northern part of South Australia and by the contrasting ochre rock, sandy desert and white salt colours of the outback.

Lake Eyre is Australia’s largest salt lake and has seen many floods of varying sizes. Water from its three- state catchment area covers the lake about once every eight years (on average); however, the lake has only filled to capacity three times in the last 150 years.

The lake is the lowest point in Australia, at 15.2 metres below sea level.

Lake Eyre National Park was proclaimed in 1985 and covers an area of 13 523 sq kilometres, including Lake Eyre and several other salt lakes, some of which are heritage listed for their rare tertiary vertebrate fossils.
