LAKE EYRE

Lake Eyre, 700 km (435 miles) north of Adelaide, South Australia, is actually two lakes (Lake Eyre North, 144km in length and 65km wide and Lake Eyre South, 65by 24km) which are joined by Goyder's Channel. It is the lowest natural point in Australia [approximately 15 m (49 ft) below sea level in Madigan Gulf] and it rarely completely fills, but when full (covering 9,500 sq km) is the largest lake in Australia , and the 18th largest in the world.

We have been fortunate to have visited Lake Eyre a couple of times when it has been full (or nearly full!).
Our visit in 1989 was during one of only two recorded times when Lake Eyre South filled first
and fed its waters into Lake Eyre North through Goyder Channel

More photos of Lake Eyre


Like all the other northern areas that we have visited, each time you visit there
are new things to see and enjoy, no two visits are ever the same.
These photos were taken in 1987, 2 years before the ones above
