The lake lies on the hot plain in south-eastern Australia. The wide bed is edged by blunt cliffs, and from the centre of the lake you see the sun rise over a high dune of sand. The sand dunes form the eastern rim of the lake and follow the shore for perhaps fifteen miles. Seen in the sharpened shadows when the sun is low, or traced as an outline on the edge of the blue sky, the rim of sand and clay resembles a long defensive wall. It has for some time been known as The Walls of China.
