Fish at Coongie Lakes?


The Warburton River just before it enters Lake Eyre which Pete MacDonald is using to illustrate a recent question that came via email about what sort of fish are in Lake Eyre?

The Warburton is fresh water flowing into Lake Eyre which is very salty. So Salty that freshwater fish can’t live in it for very long.

The fish in the Warburton, if they continue downstream will be short-lived.

However the Coongie Lakes is teeming with Callope also known as Yellowbelly or Golden Perch which is what attracts the masses of birdlife to the Lakes. To see the this & lots more go to our Lake Eyre Tour packages which are currently available.
