The Gulf of Carpentaria, Queensland is home to one of the world's most extraordinary phenomena, the Morning Glory Cloud. These clouds are so rare that most people will never see one in their life. There is only one spot on Earth where the cloud can be predicted and observed on a regular basis and that's in a tiny town called Burketown, 30 kilometres inland from the Gulf.
