Waters in Usually Dry Lake Disappointment, Australia

23.4S 122.6E

March 12th, 2013 Category: Lakes, Salt Flats

Australia – March 10th, 2013

Tropical Cyclone Rusty (17S) brought heavy rains and flood warnings to northwestern Australia in late February and early March 2013. The rains caused Lake Disappointment, a large but usually dry saline lake in the Gibson Desert, to fill with water. Despite its saltiness, Lake Disappointment provides a refuge for many species of waterfowl.
