This image stretches from the Gulf of Carpentaria (top), in northern Australia, to an area of the nation known as Channel Country (lower right quadrant), due to the numerous river channels that are flooded in times of heavy precipitation. Here, these river channels appear dark green.

Visible in the upper left quadrant are a series of green and white lakes on the westernmost edge of the Barkly Tableland in the Northern Territory. These are, from left to right, Lakes Woods, Tarrabool, Corella and Sylvester.
