Armidale: Dumaresq Creek in flood

Dumaresq Creek runs west-to-east through the centre of Armidale and bisects the city (North Hill versus South Hill). On several occasions this past year it’s been in flood. This means that many north-south running roads are closed to traffic – thus causing traffic hold-ups (well, as much as one can have a traffic hold up in Armidale).

[A traffic jam in Armidale is where you might find two or three other vehicles stopped in front of you at a road junction].

The view here, on Dangar Street near Kirkwood Street, is of the creek the day after the height of the flood.

    I would like very much to see some little floods like this around here. Still drought time. But it looks as if things have been going well there. Not TOO much.

    Boorolong Creek has been up & down like a yoyo of late. Pulled a local doctor out & another local.
