VINCENT KOTWICKI

Floods of Lake Eyre

Welcome

 

The Great Lake

LAKE EYRE, an immense salt lake which drains an area equal to that of France, Spain and Portugal, is without doubt one of the great natural wonders of the world. Not so long ago it was considered to be permanently dry, but the last fifty years have witnessed over twenty flood events, with the most spectacular fillings occurring in 1950, 1974 and 1984. When rivers come down in flood, the transformation of the desert is miraculous. As the old saying goes, the heart of Australia beats: the lake and its surroundings become alive, creating a vision of ever-changing colours and patterns that defies description.
