Large falls of rain have occurred across Outback South Australia and Central Australia since January 9th, 2015. This has caused flooding in many areas and minor flood levels in the creeks and rivers within the Lake Eyre Basin.

Some of the rivers that feed into to Lake Eyre have had up to a 3m rise in the level prior to the the rain. They have now dropped a little but the Algebuckina River is steady at 2m, the Warburton is rising at 1.5m, the Cooper Creek at Innamincka has risen by 2m and the Diamantina rose by 1.4m but has dropped. the Macumba River also has small flood headwater moving toward the lake which with the Aligebuckina is likely to bring some water into the Warburton Groove and eventually into Belt Bay in the SW corner of Lake Eyre North.

Along the Oodnadatta Track between Marree and William Creek some of the local creeks are also flowing so water will also be entering Lake Eyre South.

All outback roads in South Australia leading to Lake Eyre are now open.

 

Regardless of whether it has water or not a scenic flight over the Lake and the arid South Australian outback is a great experience.

 

   Swagabout will be offering all standard tours to the area as well as tailored options for those who wish to have a little bit more.
