Australian outback landscape

outback landscape with saltbush vegetation

Outback landscape South Australia IMG 6612 - These vast plains are part of Lake Everard station in northern South Australia.  The property, where huge flocks of sheep are raised, covers more than a million acres of this arid region of the state. Rains triggered the growth of low shrubs and other tough outback vegetation, such as saltbush, that daubed the landscape with a haze of green, but other sections of this immense grazing property have seen no rain for many years, and the ongoing drought has meant that no sheep can be stocked on some sections of the station.
