Even when the lake is not entirely filled, it’s an amazing sight. The water brings fish and birdlife, and the interaction between the water and an algae called Dunaliella salina endows the landscape with a pink hue. The best view is from an aircraft, but you can also take a 4WD tour around the edge. The indigenous land owners, the Arabanna people, ask that visitors respect the waterway and not take recreational craft out on it.
Also consider taking an air safari tour that includes camping overnight. You’d never think a flood plain would astonish you, but the combination of scale and the sense of the ephemeral make it a very special experience.
