- Off the beaten track
The islands in the lake, which were small hills before the area was deliberated flooded, are home to colonies of marsupials. They have been completely isolated for nearly 40 years.
During March and April, at the end of the rainy season, millions of spiders build enormous webs. It is common to see whole trees and rocky outcrops completely covered in webs.
In May and June, thousands of crocodiles dig their nests on the islands and in November the eggs hatch. Finally, in September, the migrant waders start arriving from the northern hemisphere.
If you like hearing stories about this region's pioneers, who were completely isolated from the world, then you will like Durack Homestead Museum. It was built in 1895 using limestone and mortar made from crushed termite mounds.
