LAKE EYRE BASIN — MAPPING EXERCISE
Answer the following questions
1. Which States take in the Lake Eyre Basin? Why could this be a problem for the
   management of the Basin?
2. Some of the rivers appear not to flow into Lake Eyre. Suggest reasons why they are
   considered part of the Basin.
3. Find out the names of the mountain ranges that form the watershed for the Lake Eyre
   Basin.
4. From the map, which watercourse probably contributes most to the Basin? Why would
   damming this or any of the major watercourses cause problems downstream?
5. How many times has Lake Eyre filled in the last 150 years?
6. Using appropriate colours, shade in your map and title it correctly.
