This year's flood event at Lake Eyre hasn't just delivered a spectacular natural wonder, it has also brought new life to Central Australia and a crucial economic boost to remote businesses.
The floodwater has invigorated local communities throughout its almost 1,000-kilometre journey from north Queensland through the Lake Eyre Basin.
The opportunity to see the usually dry lake in flood attracted tourists like Penny Davidson to catch an aerial glimpse of the ephemeral event.
