I don’t mind doing it, I have a cool one of the Lake I’ll put it up later.
Also the Eyre / Georgina creek is huge nothing I have seen before but I am only a pup in Sat. Image land.
However I am not very reliable as the bush is where my heart is so the connection to any devices is limited.
The link below should get you going, you will have to play with it and don’t forget the date scale on the bottom and it doesn’t update until later in the day and cloudy days are useless. Some days you get great black cracks as well but you do get some really cool days. It’s a great program and you know what the beauty of it it’s free.
The labels I put on in a photo editor.

Good to see Lake Eyre written next to that name in the pic, I had no idea where you were talking about until I saw that.

Indeed, Lake Eyre to me also
Now is the only time you own
Decide now what you will,
Place faith not in tomorrow
For the clock may then be still

If you consider how big the Lake is and all that water is heading for it kinda gets a bit scarey. Luckily it is the nature of country near the Lake to flood out and flood out and flood out....

You blokes are doing well. Australia's still New Holland to me and Tasmania is Van Diemen's Land. Don't get me started on the Dutch East Indies.

I recall Uluru had a lot of resistance in the beginning, but is now used more readily than Ayers Rock. Even I (old bugger) now use Uluru. At least it is easy on the tongue and a single word.

I can't get my head around Kata Tjuta though, I think Olgas is just easier.

Now here we go no with Kati Thanda.
I did not know Lake Eyre is to be named something else.

Renaming the capital cities probably isn't far off either.

There’s been a few dual names given like the Ikara Flinders National Park and also the Munga - Thirri National Park which was the Simpson National Park but a bit confusing if that is the conservation park and the regional reserve as well. There have been media articles released. Ah well a change won’t hurt anyone like you said after a while it just rolls of your tongue.

"Renaming the capital cities probably isn't far off either."

The Noongar-Boodjar Land Trust has just been given Native Title to ALL unallocated Crown Land and Reserves, in the South West of W.A. - thus effectively giving them almost total control over that land - so I guess you're not far wrong there.

This "Land Deal" has effectively stopped any land transfers or applications for Unallocated Crown Land over the last 2 years.

I have tried to acquire some Industrial land (which is zoned UCL) in a small country town in W.A., about 130 kms out of Perth, but was told nothing can happen until the Noongar-Boodjar deal is fully signed - which will not be until the end of 2019 - and then I will have to deal with the N-BLT before I start to deal with other Govt authorities.

We are being overwhelmed with bureaucracy and pandering to minorities.

Even now, we have had emergency services in W.A. unable to pinpoint a site where an urgent requirement for emergency services was required - because the emergency caller could not pronounce the Aboriginal name of the tourist spot, because the "white peoples name" had been removed.

The naming system is a poorly-thought-out shambles, and it will end up costing more lives.

Cheers, Ron.

Judging by today’s(7th) image, Eyre Ck water has started to flow into Lake Machattie again.
