Two heavy rainfall events across the upper-Diamantina and Georgina River catchments from late-January to March 2019 generated significant runoff in the Lake Eyre Basin. Inflows to Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre began in mid-March and are expected to continue through May and into June.

Over six Sydney Harbours worth of water passed through Birdsville on its way to Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre between the start of February and end of April, with plenty more to come.
