Lake Lewis is the furthest from the coast of Australia's salt lakes and lies at the southern edge of influence of the Australian monsoon regime. The MacDonnell Ranges south of the lake intercept moist air masses crossing the region and efficiently deliver water and sediment to the lake and its surrounding alluvial plain.
