Coongie Lakes update?

G'day All

We are planning a visit to Coongie Lakes in early July on our return from Birdsville. I would appreciate an indication from any travellers who have visited the area recently as to the current water levels in the lakes, the state of the & the condition of the track into the lakes from Innamincka.
Thanks in anticipation.

Graham, according to "Coongie Lakes National Park has reopened. After being closed due to floodwaters, the floodplains north of Kudriemitchie have finally dried out". When I was in Innamincka at Easter, the park was still closed and some locals told me the track is often closed so best if you check the road reports close to your travelling date. Good luck.

Graham, we were there a few weeks ago & all was good.The road in is fine & there is still plenty of water & birdlife in the Lakes.The Cooper has stopped flowing over the causeway at Innaminka in the last few weeks also.
A beautiful part of Australia..have been there a number of times & never tire of it.
Have fun
Every day vertical above ground is a bonus.

Acc. to this site as of June 1 the track was closed.

The Desert Parks Bulletin dated May 21 had it open to 4WD.

Best to ring the Innmincka Trading Post.
