Hi folks, we are going to try and get to Lake Eyre before it dries, Do you think Sept., is too late to get out there??

Hi Keith
The Cooper is about to enter Lake Eyre very soon and when it does it will do so for many months and probably well into early 2011, so there will still be water there for you to see in September.

Cheers

Hi Keith, if you view the Lake Eyre Yacht Club site you will see that there is still 1.7m of water off Halligan Bay. It's not evaporating too fast in this cold weather so you will see some from the air in Sept. If you drive past Lake Eyre South on the Oodnadatta Track there's water to be seen and arguably the view is better as you are watching from a bit of a rise so the perspective is more favorable than from a low shoreline at Halligan Bay or Level Post Bay. Try to get out to the Ferry over the Cooper - it's a fun day trip from Marree - 300km return. See the pix in Places.... W
