Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre: Current Status Feb 2020

This is your go to page for the latest on Lake Eyre 2020. 

February 2020

Lake Eyre is mostly dry with pools of water from local rain,  but not of great  significance.

There is brief moderate flooding in all rivers in Queensland catchment area and is expected the
Diamantina will trickle into Lake Eyre North  in March.

Lake Eyre South has about 500mm but will soon dry.

However following the flooding of 2019, it is predicted that there is a fair chance it will get substantial water this year, as it often does for 2 years running, when it does flood,  every 10 or so years.

Lake Eyre South 600mm but will soon dry

We had full intentions of adding some commentary but the sound of Mother Nature in the Channel Country took our breath away! Enjoy the moment.
