Cooper Creek II AL04313

This is believed to be the only instance in the world where two rivers flow into a creek. Cooper Creek spreads out into a vast area of anastomosing ephemeral channels, making its way roughly south into the far south-west corner of Queensland before turning due west into South Australia towards Lake Eyre. Cooper Creek is one of the most well-known rivers in Australia because it was where the explorers Burke and Wills tragically died in 1861.
