Lake Eyre spectacular 5-day outback tour with Gekko safari

The influx of water from ex-cyclone Kirrily has sparked a remarkable transformation across western Queensland, with rivers and creeks in the Lake Eyre Basin swelling and flowing southward towards Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre. This natural event has led to moderate flooding in several rivers such as the Cooper Creek, Thomson, Barcoo, Georgina, and Diamantina, all contributing to the replenishment of Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre.

The journey of this water, originating from as far as Alice Springs, Mt Isa, Cloncurry, and Longreach, highlights the interconnectedness of Australia's waterways. It's a reminder of the profound impact of weather systems on the landscape and ecosystems.

The abundance of pelicans and the arrival of banded stilts, traveling vast distances to partake in the flourishing ecosystem, further emphasize the significance of the water influx from ex-cyclone Kirrily. This natural phenomenon isn't just about the physical transformation of the landscape; it's about the intricate web of life it supports, from the smallest organisms to the majestic birds that grace the skies.

This period presents a unique opportunity for travellers to witness the rejuvenation of the outback as it comes to life with the influx of water. From the thriving wildlife to the scenic landscapes, there's much to experience and appreciate during this time. Gekko Safari's 5-day tours, including visits to the Flinders Ranges and Cooper Pedy, along with a flight over Lake Eyre with Wrights Air, offer an incredible chance to immerse oneself in the beauty and majesty of this natural spectacle.

Now is the moment to seize the opportunity and immerse yourself in the splendour of the outback as it flourishes. Contact Gekko safari to book a tour of a lifetime on 0423 483 780 or send us an email [email protected]
