Lake Eyre and surrounds

Has anyone recently been to Cowarie and accessed the Warburton? Or been to Level Post Bay or Halligans Bay? Has the water arrived at these access points to the Lake?

This what NASA said it’s like, Phil, on 2nd June, ‘19.

Bob, could you please let me know where I can access this imagery, so I can look at the Warburton around Cowarie and Kalumarina. Many thanks.

PhilD - Here is the NASA link - but I'm not sure the site is of huge benefit to you, as NASA do not provide high resolution imagery on this site - the high resolution imagery is reserved for paying customers and the military.

NASA Satellite Imagery - Worldview

Add layers by clicking on the "Add Layers" button. Select "All" from the new pop-up menu, then scroll down to select whatever layer you wish to add.
"Reference Map" is available, outlining roads and places - but be aware, the map is extremely basic, and lacks detail.
Activate the layer by clicking on the eyeball icon on the far left of the layer list.
Hide the layer by clicking on the eyeball again.

If you zoom in too close, the imaging becomes blurry, and a yellow exclamation mark appears next to the eyeball.
Holding your mouse cursor on this yellow exclamation mark tells you, "Layer is overzoomed by 1x times its maximum zoom level".

Cheers, Ron.

We were at Halligan Bay (and ABC Bay) on the nights of 31/5 and 1/6.
Water is reportedly 3km from shore and is NOT visible from land.
The grader completed a full grade of the road on 31/5 and the road was brilliant going out.
The Oodnadatta track has more traffic than I have ever seen in 50 years. The road condition is "very ordinary". Dust and vehicles that don't slow down are a problem.
Cheers,
Peter

Hi PhilD
Have a look on the William Creek Hotel Facebook page there is a good picture of Halligans Bay with water approaching the shoreline. It looks like a couple of hundred meters.

Cheers

Matt

LEYC - Lake Eyre Yacht Club. Click on their Lake Status picture. Link here: http://lakeeyreyc.com/Status/latest.html#bottom

All the water in Lake Eyre went down the Diamantina/Warburton through Cowarie and is still flowing. Eyre Ck upstream joins in too and has only just fallen enough to open the QAA line so there is still plenty more to come..............W

There's a post on another forum (4x4Earth) and he was at Halligan's Bay this past Monday - He said still sign of water yet... Personally, I reckon it will still some months away and I would be surprised if the lake gets to the predicted 75% mark. No real water in Madigan Bay, nothing in Lake Eyre South either...
