2011 Floods in Rockhampton Part 2 – Around Town

Some more flood shots for you, just in case you’re not too sick of them. We’ve been walking around town a bit, and this is just some of the stuff I’ve seen… more as I get the time to upload.

To any interested media or Emergency Services staff… please feel free to reproduce and/or distribute these images. Please attribute pics to PhoenixPhotos and let us know where they’ll be used so that we can provide a link here…

I took a bus ride into the city last Wednesday. The river was at its peak of 9.2m.

On Saturday, we took a walk along The Range out to the Emergency Services Checkpoint at the entrance to the city. We stopped at the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens along the way too.

But there are some plusses to this flooding… for the right species at least. These little guppies are breeding like crazy.
