The human eye can supposedly distinguish around 2.5 million different colours. But there is scientific debate whether colour is actually real. When colours are described as red or blue or yellow, it is most often taken for granted that other people will understand and know what these colours mean. But it is not clear whether people's experiences of colour are actually the same; that colour is merely a creation of our brains.

For the first time in years, the water flowed all the way to Lake Eyre, the huge salt pan in the dead heart of the continent. ABC TV reporter Paul Lockyer covered the drought in 2009, and now returns to Lake Eyre 12 months later to investigate the floods sweeping across much of south west Queensland.
