River Murray at Loxton in Flood
These are photos that we took at Loxton. The river levels are rising, so much so that we could not drive down to Hebel's Bend. The caravan park has relocated all the on-site cabins to higher ground as well as relocating their office. It is anticipated that the river will rise and fall at least three times over the next six months as water flows into the Murray from its huge catchment area. Photo Album ...

The Murray Flooding
Having bought a new Pentax Digital SLR last week, what better to do than use it. The Murray River is flooding for the first time since 1992. Usually we receive between 3,000 - 6,000 megalitres flow per day. Currently flows are around 65,000 megalitres with a peak flow of 90,000 megalitres predictaed for the middle of January 2011. These are the photos that we took at the following locations:
  • Berri Marina
  • Martin's Bend
  • Lyrup Hill
  • Lock 5
  • Headings Cliff
  • Tortise Crossing
  • Bookpurnong Road
  • Lock 4

Everlasting became stuck at the following co-ordinates - S 34 06.708 E 141 15.411 ...

Topsoil was brought in for the new garden beds. Native plants were purchased and an irrigation dripper system fitted. Ten (10) solar lights were fitted along the line separating the drive round driveway and the garden area. Photo Album ...
