Looks to be just the one big hit with the levels dropping in Birdsville already.

What is the link for these satellite images please, Teraa?

Thanks,

Try this one it should have place names ,let me know I’d it doesn’t work
You have to,play with the maps layers to get different aspects.
The next thing to watch is the creek marker at the end of the Goyders link below.
Because as the channel gets smaller you don’t always see it with these sat. Images. Poothapoota WH.

Thank you both, for those links.

I recall some years back, probably during the last major flood event, that these sat images were posted, but the current EO search system needs more time, and patience, than I have available at the moment.

Thanks again,
Bob

The sat pic also shows that Eyre Creek is now below Bedourie and filling Lake Machattie and two others. It does not seem to be flowing any further south. So a QAA line crossing should be OK and in fact could be done in just 12 more days as the Simpson is reopened on the 15th. That's if you'd want to be there in the heat LOL...... W

You’re right, Warrie. When the Hamilton added some weight to the Georgina flow, I was a little concerned, but there is a huge area of very dry floodplain south of Lake Machattie to Adria Downs, that will further deplete the Eyre Ck flow.

Seems that flies may be the only worry for the Simpson’s “early travellers”. Temps have been down to high 30’s to low 40’s. Not too bad if that’s the only time one can travel?

Looking good for late May!

If travelling in the desert this year be wary of the tracks very dry very soft, the only thing wet is the creek.

Talking to a mate this morning, and he had some current info on Eyre Ck.

Following the daily NASA sat images, the water appears to have stalled in the lake system West of Lake Machattie, over the past week or so. However, the water has started running into Cowarie waterhole, just through the Glengyle/Adria Downs boundary, a few days ago.



It was suggested that the water would take another week to reach Muncoonie waterhole, where the Adria homestead is situated. Whether there will be enough water to reach the QAA Line is unknown, but at this stage I’d suggest it’s highly unlikely, or may only be a negligible amount.

Bob.

It’s very dry country out there but they the darker colour water the deeper it is, the water often stalls out that way takes a bit to get it all the way.

It’s well and truly into the Warburton 2 weeks ahead of usual rate going about 30 km in 12 hours

Yes Teraa, we were also talking about the speed of this flood this morning too. Compared it to the ‘99 flood which scoured clay pans and any other ridge country that was flooded. Falls of up to 15” over a day or two, around the Middleton area, got the channels running at full noise.
