Water is scarce in the Lake Eyre Basin. The lake, in the heart of South Australia, is the lowest point in the whole country – 15 metres below sea level. And while it spends the majority of the time as a dry, barren expanse covering more than one million hectares, on the rare occasions it floods it becomes the largest lake in Australia. A new book, Lake Eyre Basin Rivers, explores the basin, its rivers and the life it supports.
