Picture of Desert Channels: The Impulse to Conserve.
The Desert Channels region is the north-east part of the Lake Eyre Basin in far western Queensland. It extends from Camoweel in the north-west to Torrens Creek in the north-east; Tambo, Windorah and Eromanga fall within the regional area further south. Its essential character is defined by its arterial network of rivers, where some of Australia’s most interesting conservation initiatives are occurring. This explores the protection of the varied biodiversity of the region. Illustrated with colour photos. From the CSIRO

The book is the centrepiece of a project that combines book, art exhibitions and web-based educational materials exploring the distinctive Desert Channels country in south-western Queensland. The region is the main source of all the desert rivers in arid Australia, and its rivers drain into Lake Eyre. The region includes the Channel Country and adjacent Simpson Desert and extends north east of Longreach to include Mound Springs country.
