    Don't be overwhelmed by the vast horizons and endless landscape, there are many little things to see. This Lake Eyre Dragon isn't lost, it's not confined to just lake Eyre but lives throughout the arid region. The small vegetated islands in the lake provide refuges and feeding grounds for myriads of small creatures.

    The longest fence in the world, it runs through South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland. Mostly called the "Dog Fence" it was built to keep dingos out of sheep country. Many an Australian legend incorporates a reference to the Dog Fence.

    What is quite surprising is the number of ant colonies in the bed of the lake. Maybe the soil is mounded up around the entrance to stop the very rare waters of the lake from pouring in down their tunnels. But obviously the ants are finding enough to keep themselves going.

Lake Frome Warnings and Dangers

    Watch for emus along the track. When spooked they're just as likely to race off around the other side of the scrub and come out right in front of you. The same could be applied to kangaroos, although I didn't see any along the track. There were lots of their footprints around the edges of the lake though.

    Longest fence in the world, the Dingo Fence runs along side the lake. The old and the new fences run close by. Don't forget to close the gates after you pass through. Unlike other gates in the outback, don't leave it open if you find it already open.

    This is a remote area and although the trip to the lake isn't particularly difficult, be sure you're carrying sufficient water and food in case the unexpected does happen and you are stranded for a while. Remember, shade as well as water is in short supply.
