When it eased a bit we took a drive around some of the rivers crossings.
Our first stop was the luminous heart community on Oxbow Rd. On the way a stream was emerging from the paddock.
This is where a tributary to hanging rock creek crosses the road. It’s comforting to know we have a home on both sides of the water.
Next we went to check out Leycester Creek where it crosses into Billen Cliffs. The level indicator is no where to be seen. Billen is a community of several hundred, so I was surprised to see no one waiting to get in.
This is hanging rock waterfall. It starts up at the Pinnacle in the Boarder Ranges National Park. It is normally one of our favourite water holes, today it looks pretty treacherous.
There has been a landslip and a large tree has blocked the way.
It isn’t just the big rivers though. Some of the most beautiful tiny waterfalls appear. These are from the gully below our house.
