Australia - March 31st, 2011

The paths of rivers in Australia’s Channel Country stand out as green and light tan lines against the surrounding rusty red landscape.

Channel Country is a region of outback Australia whose name comes from the numerous intertwined rivulets that cross the region, which cover 150,000 km².

It features an arid landscape with a series of ancient flood plains from rivers which only flow intermittently. The principal rivers are Georgina River, Cooper Creek and the Diamantina River.
