The Fitzroy River in flood. While the river is flooding, and it has made headlines on National TV - in fact there is very little risk to most residents (and it is a long way from my house). Darryl and I cycled around on Saturday morning (2 Feb) and took photos around the riverbank. The views from Mt Archer of the city were taken the day before by Darryl. Swirling floodwaters flooding down the Fitzroy River. Big clumps of water hyacinth are being washed down. Notice the train going North over the railway bridge.
