Outback 2011

Lake Eyre

  We were up early in Marree to get to the airstrip for our flight over Lake Eyre. This was a highlight of our trip, even if the plane was disturbingly small and the pilot disturbingly young. †

  The Birdsville Track just outside Marree, where it crosses Coopers Creek. The Creek is in flood, and will block the Track here for around two years. There is a detour and a punt ferry. *

The rest of this page shows photos of Lake Eyre from the air. The first two rows are from Lynn, the others from Nick.
   
   

Then it was back into Marree, and onwards to Coober Pedy.
