Lake Cowal - West Wyalong

Situated 47 kilometers north east of West Wyalong in central New South Wales (NSW), Lake Cowal is the state’s largest natural inland lake. It is part of the Wilbertroy-Cowal Wetlands within a large flood plain, the Jemalong Plain. Fed by its major tributary Bland Creek and by occasional floods from the Lachlan River, the lake is ephemeral but is substantially full for seven out of ten years. As floods recede Lake Cowal drains back into the Lachlan communicating with the Murray River.
