'Coolabah Silhouette, Coongie Lakes' by Erika Calder


Oil on canvas. 60.5 X 90cms

The Coongie Lakes are a unique string of fresh water lakes (five major ones that spread to hundreds during floods), these lakes form along the northern arm of the Cooper Creek that splits into two after passing the town of Innaminka in Northern South Australia.


These lakes are surrounded by coolabah gums that support a huge, often population of migratory birds. These lakes also contain about six or seven different varieties of fish and the Cooper Creek turtle. There are many plants endemic to the area and there is much evidence of Aboriginal habitation with massive middens of scallop shells and fire-places throughout the area.
