The local area of Central Queensland (Gladstone and Rockhampton) have also been receiving smaller but significant doses of the rains and subsequent floods.
We drove around Gladstone today and took some photos of the impacts on local rivers and waterways.
|Police Creek - the path to nowhere|
|More of Police Creek|
|The old bridge across the Calliope River|
lies underwater in the current flood.
|This is the sign for the caravan park which is usually found|
on the banks of the Calliope River and is now under water.
|You can see the sign in the previous photo stuck in the|
middle of the floodway. Any campers might find the
camping ground to the left, a little big soggy at this time.
|Some more of the Calliope River|
|This is a creek from the other end of the Calliope River|
just before it reaches the Pacific Ocean.
|This is the other end of Calliope River itself, just before|
it flows into the Pacific Ocean.
|And as mentioned in a previous entry, this is the Awoonga dam|
which is built on the Boyne River, also in the local region. This
is the first time the dam has overflowed since it was raised in 2002.
