Information

Named by Royal Australian Survey Corps after WO2 Cohen, a member of the 1961 reconnaissance survey field party which carried out a series of astro-fixes in the area, Lake Cohen is a broad series of clay pans that fill after significant rainfall within the Gibson Desert region. Bordering the Gary Highway approximately 82 kilometres north of the Gunbarrel Highway. When full, this ephemeral lake covers an area of two square kilometres and provides a haven for migratory birds.
