Probably, but you may need a flight to appreciate it, or even see it.
As it dries it leaves pristine white salt behind, so can be very beautiful.

Thankyou peter for your reply.

Have seen the salt lakes previously and you are right.

We were at lake gairdner earler this year for the time trials on the salt lake..

I keep posting this pic :) but you can see the salt - water - desert contrasts which you don't get to appreciate from the ground, even if the water is no longer close to the shore line. There was 10mm of water 200m from the shore of Halligan Bay when these were taken.

Guys....

Looking at the NASA site for the water flowing into Lake Eyre - It still looks a fair way from looking like being filled. Madigans Bay doesn't look to have much if any water in it. It seems from looking at the NASA page that the only place to see the water "from the ground" is to drive to Halligan Bay - Is this correct?

I/we can't afford a plane flight yet (have to wait until the kids are off our hands) so wanting to see it from the ground but to date, Halligan Bay seems the only spot...
