This is an area flooded to bring water to the outback.
The result is a strange place where sea eagles rule, fish thrive and lizards abound.
WIldlife, attracted by the water, are in abundance. It is well worth a look if you are into nature, fishing or just want to see something unique.
Menindee Lakes has a tour operator, a general store and a local pub, just the thing for a day out.
See also my new tip in favourites for more sunrise and sunset shots.

Directions: As we say in Oz, it's just down from the Hill. That means about an hour south of Broken Hill.
