The country’s biggest lake, Lake Eyre, is surrounded by an ever changing environment. It is generally dry and barren, devoid of life- but when the rains finally come the area transforms into something quite spectacular.
In 2009, ABC journalist Paul Lockyer set out to document the story of the lake. Featuring photographs by John Bean, Gary Ticehurst and endpapers by artist John Olsen, the recently published book is an amazing view of the lake and surrounding area.
An truly amazing book about a truly amazing part of the country. Lake Eyre: A journey through the heart of the country can be found in all ABC shops and online, after it’s launch in March 2012. Click here for more incredible images from the book, and details from the launch.
