This magnificent natural phenomenon is normally dry, however when the Northern regions of Australia receive significant rainfall, Lake Eyre is susceptible to flooding.
This transformation in the landscape creates an incredible flow-on effect, bringing in an abundance of birdlife and wildlife to the newly transformed region. Whether in the midst of flooding, or during a dry period, Lake Eyre is a truly magnificent sight to behold by land or by air.
