Lake Eyre special on ABC 1

For those watching ABC1 last night, you probably saw the special on Lake Eyre, commemorating the filming expeditions of ABC reporter Paul Lockyer, cameraman John Bean and pilot Gary Ticehurst, who sadly died whilst filming. It captured some of the most spectacular scenes of Lake Eyre and Outback regions in flood.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it, here is a brief spiel about the doco. But basically it was a superb view nature in fine form- with millions of birds flocking to the swollen lakes and river systems, all of which are now brimming with fish.

This is such an amazing spectacle, and seldom occurs to such an extent! In fact, Lake Eyre only fills once every 200 years and Goin’ Off Safaris can take you there!

If you want the opportunity to see such a rare and remarkable event, then now is the time to check out our Lake Eyre and Outback 2 Day and 3 Day Safaris! Join us here at Goin’ Off Safaris on a truly a once in a lifetime experience!
