William Creek is a lot closer to lake Eyre and is set up to do joy flights. Don't know if the other places do flights. Birdsville would I think. That would be a longer flight but you would see the desert from the air.

My 7 year old daughter as the pilot, What would be more salty, the Dead sea or Lake Eyre with water in it? I would be interested in your thoughts.

I wouldn't have a clue really but I would guess that when there is a lot of water in Lake Eyre, the Dead Sea is saltier, and as Lake Eyre dries up, then it would be saltier.
Question: What are seven year olds asking stuff like that for?

My daughter, Eliza, has my good looks and the rest she got from her mum.

I have been to Lake Caddibarrawirracanna just to the west of William Creek and it is extrremely salty with large flakes of salt protruding up from the surface. BTW it is the longest place name in South Australia. I am sure that Eliza would be interested :-)

Cheers,

After much debate around the camp fire the following conclusion was made. Water can only absorb salt until it reaches it's saturation point. So we think that they would be equal in salt content.
