People booking flights to Australia may be interested in visiting Lake Eyre in the south of the country.
One of the reasons to visit Lake Eyre – other than to see the natural phenomenon itself – is the prolific birdlife that is attracted to its shores.
Keen birdwatchers will be able to spot species such as red-necked avocets, grey teals and red-backed kingfishers.
When full, Lake Eyre covers an area of 9,690 kilometres. However, this salt lake is only one small part of the Lake Eyre Basin, which stretches for more than one million square kilometres and is spread across four states – Queensland, New South Wales, the Northern Territory and South Australia.
