Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park - current status 2013
As of 25 September 2013
After Lake Eyre drying up after four years of flooding, there is water once again on the lake after local rains around the William Creek to Roxby Downs area in late May/early June.
Despite this local rain, Lake Eyre North is all but dry, with very shallow water remaining within the Warburton Groove. There are no water flows coming into Lake Eyre North. Belt Bay, Jackboot Bay and Madigan Gulf are all dry.
Lake Eyre South is now dry.
With temperatures and evaporation rates increasing, unless there is rain, this small amount of water will disappear in the coming months.
The best way to see the enormity of Lake Eyre is from the air. A number of tour operators offer ground and/or flight tours.
