    Hey Guys,

    With all the flooding that devastated Qld recently, there is a silver lining, and that is Lake Eyre is filling. So I'm thinking i have to visit! Now I'm thinking it'd be great to drive down in my fourby (Daihatsu Rocky) to see all the wildlife, and some photography.

    My questions are, and I'm unsure if this is the best place to ask them;

    1) when does the wildlife really swing into action? Do you want to wait until spring, or as soon as it floods?

    2) what would you do along the way if you were driving from Sydney? I'm a keen photographer, 4WDer and environmentalist, so an offorad detour to check out photogenic billabongs with insane wildlife or vistas would be epic!

    Any help you can share would be great, thank you.

    Can't help you exactly, but maybe a bit more detail is needed?
    • What's your 4WD experience? (beginner etc)
    • What's the timeframe for the trip?
    • Camping/motel/swag/camper trailer?

    The road from Wanarring to Tibooburra is rocky and corrugated.

    Ive camped not far from the Innamincka hotel by Cooper creek. That's not bad.
