- Australia Daily Photo: Lake Eyre

Lake Eyre

Lake Eyre is in South Australia and the access point we used to get out to it was off the Oodnadatta track. This lake is so big that we went with the hope of seeing water as it was flooding for one of the only times this century, but it was bone dry where we were (The water hadn't flowed down yet!) Apparently you needed a plane to see the water.
Lake Ekye is the sight of the land speed record on July 17th 1964 where Sir Donald Campbell and the Bluebird reached well over 400mph (650 kmh). For me the lasting memory of this place is the vast emptiness and the sky going on forever... oh and the flies!! - Needed to wear a head net to keep them at bay!

  1. Very beautiful picture. I love deserts and slat lakes. Actually, it reminds me very much of Iran, my country, and the similar landscape you can find in some parts of it.
