Skywatch at Lake Ninan

Lake Ninan is a salt lake about 15 klms from town. At the moment there is enough water in it, thanks to some good recent rain,  to call it  a lake. The lake has suffered from water logging and increased salinity levels. The water here can be 6 times saltier than the ocean. Bird life has also decreased but we did find evidence that some were still around even though we did not see them. In years gone by it was a popular for fishing, boating and water skiing. Now you would be hard pressed to enjoy a picnic due to the ever increasing Aussie bush fly.  Enjoy the clear blue sky.
