Hey folks,

That picture is exactly what I saw when I flew the lake yesterday.

The dark blue areas are all standing water, and the rest is dry.

Thanks guys, hope the water stays up there .

Pauls pic shows Island Lagoon on top right, often wondered if it would be a viable alternative if Lk G got too complicated

old Satelite tracking station on the edge has access, but searching for info has it mud in the top half near the tracking station , & near its island , but looks like good salt to run nearly east to west on the longest path , or vise versa
No idea on its ownership status

Nearly thirty years ago I went to Island Lagoon in an effort to check out the salt. Drove in to the old tracking station to have a look. It's situated high on a plateau overlooking the lake. Good views but I couldn't find any access down to the surface. What I could see though was that it was all mud, no salt anywhere. If I was going there today I'd check out the southern end, every satellite image I've ever seen has shown the southern end as white as can be.

About 8 years ago myself and Col Kranz with our young boys got onto the southern end of Island Lagoon . It was ROUGH going . I remember thinking that there was no way a truck or someone towing anything big would be able to use the road we were on . We were in 4 wheel drives.
I go past Island lagoon regularly ,either flying or by road and always check it out . It certainly is a wild sight.

The area you are talking about is north of the boundary of the part of the lake described in the Act as being set aside for motorsport purposes and a long way from the new "COMMERCIAL PURPOSES" zone that we arexpect now restricted to by DEWNR
