Lake Eyre Day Tour – DD01

Lake Eyre lies in the very heart of Australia’s outback and is where the great inland rivers of the outback converge. We travel through the Dingo Fence, Anna Creek, Lake Cadibarrawirracanna, William Creek, Lake Eyre National Park and Halligan Bay where we invite you to lunch 15 metres below sea level on the shore of this mystical lake that is impressive, whether covered by a dry salt crust, or filled with water. Learn about the ancient land, how the inland sea was formed, Lake Eyre and the Lake Eyre Basin, the formation of the Great Artesian Basin, the early explorers, flora and fauna, what it is like to live in this arid and diverse desert environment and hear plenty of bush yarns about the outback characters.
