The Channel Country is region of outback Australia located mostly in the state of Queensland but also in portions of South Australia, Northern Territory and New South Wales. The name comes from the numerous intertwined rivulets that cross the region, which cover 150,000 kmĀ². Here, those intertwined bodies of water appear as green strands across the region. In the full image, Lake Eyre, the ephemeral lake that receives the drainage from those rivers when there is enough rainfall, can be observed in the lower left corner.
