COOPER CREEK & MORE

 

The catchment for Lake Eyre is huge.  The Cooper Creek bit starts between Charters Towers and Hughenden going from a spring to a creek to a river, back to a creek and then, sometimes, getting to Lake Eyre.

 

The plan is to start at Lake Eyre and work slowly upstream, trying to camp two nights at most places to give time to relax, bird watch, study nature, kayak, fish.  We’ll be camping in National Parks and Conservation Areas.

 

The trip will take about 4 weeks, but for those that are time constrained it has the potential to be a hop on - hop off trip.
