Lake Eyre gearing up for a big 2017

Lake Eyre Oct 2016

Taste of the Outback Tours season closes for 2016

The word from our local guides at William Creek, Muloorina and the Flinders Ranges is that 2017 could be an even bigger year for Lake Eyre than 2016. We’ll be watching the Lake Eyre Yacht Club status page as well as keeping in contact with our guides over the summer in preparation. The beginning of October saw our last two Taste of the Outback tours to Lake Eyre for 2016, with increasing temperatures and evaporation beginning to dry the region. Despite this, significant life and greenery is still present from Birdsville right down the Diamantina to Lake Eyre – a particularly unseasonal phenomena that’s made for a spectacular backdrop on our tours. In 2016 we’ve completed 26 tours to Lake Eyre and Central Australia, making it our busiest year for Lake Eyre since 2011. Keep an eye on our tour dates for next year, as we’ve already scheduled a dozen trips with more to be put on as demand increases. Save
