Google earth is fun to play around with....sure beats buying aerial photos.

Here's a question for you. Who will guess the answer first?

Which lake is this (and any pictures)?

Bonz
at first I thought he was up to know good and had posted the pic upside down to hoodwink us, so i stood on my head and looked and looked and looked....that didnt make sense cos it was very dangerous standing upside down on the desk .....and besides it hurting my head...so i stood back up and hey presto it stood out like a sore thumb...

i just looked for white patches across OZ...and whatdayouno.... there it was

dunno know really!

Yes, Alan, you don't normally associate salt lakes with central Qld. Access to the eastern side, where I took the photo, is from the road shown in the GE image. I assume the lake is mostly/entirely on station properties.
As you can see, the surrounding country is quite flat, so there's no dramatic scenery around, just a large expanse of lake (nearly full when we were there). It didn't look to be very deep, and the article above confirms that. You'd get very muddy trying to put a boat in.
One mystery to me is that nearer to the waterline, the shore was covered with a thick mat of whitish, hair-like fibres - animal, vegetable or mineral? Maybe someone on here knows.

Cheers, John
