Catch a glimpse of Australia's Lake Eyre, the largest lake in Australia - at least on the rare occasions when it's completely full. The lake has only filled to capacity three times in the last 150 years, so if you're lucky enough to see it at this time, then you're seeing something rare and amazing. Set at an altitude of 15 meters (49 feet) below sea level, it is also the lowest point on the Australian continent and provides the scene for one of the most incredible natural spectacles to be found anywhere in the world. This occurs every 3-4 years when the cycle of rainfall allows the water level to rise enough to cause the barren landscape to explode into life and become a major breeding ground for wildlife. It's a sight that draws people from not only around Australia, but the entire world and symbolizes the resilience of the Australian Outback and its inhabitants. Part of Lake Eyre National Parks, the area is remote and wild; but just getting there can be an adventure!
