Jan 26th, 2010
I want to show the depth of this river just to allow you to see how much water is in the river....these photos were taken on Australia Day when we had really minor flooding.....
This is the car bridge
This is the railway bridge....the water in
And here I am almost standing under the railway bridge taking this photo towards the car bridge

As you have all seen today how magical the river looks when it is in flood! Seeing this river in flood makes my heart skip a beat!!! Well this morning I went out at 6.50am to see if it was in flood already and this is what was in the river....
Now tonight after hubby come home we were told that the river was in minor flooding. So we hopped in the car and saw this along the way, watching the storms build out at the river. What a difference 12 hours makes to the river. It was like 7.00pm when we arrived at the river and this is what we saw on one side of the river approx 8 metres has to get to 15 mts to go over the car bridge.
And Lisa this is where your kids were swimming under the trees and swinging off the tree into the river (with the croc's) just to the left of that dead tree! LOL!and this is what was on the other sideI will be going to the river first thing in the morning, hopefully it won't have gone over the bridge during the night. OMG I love this river!!!
Looking forward to sharing more photographs with you all, in the mean time Happy Snapping! Point, Focus and Shoot!! Luv Shaz xoxo


  1. Are you serious - did you see crocs there?


  2. No babe....I didn't see a croc...but now that the river is in minor flooding who knows what will come down the river! The river is still rising, hopefully by morning it won't have gone over the bridge Luv Shaz xoxo

  3. Wow Shaz, it is amazing how much difference a couple of hours makes. I cant imagine having that much water seemingly coming from nowhere.
