The drought was so bad that the Council applied for water to be brought to Cloncurry from Mt Isa at great cost. Then the floods came and the rivers and the Reservoir at Chinamans Creek were filled to over flowing.
This was the first rain in along time.
It was to bring the whole desert alive with the color green
Here the muddy floodwaters rush along the river.
In the last photo where the line of white is, marks the spot of the whole Road, which is now completely under water. That is where my Cloncurry Riuver Photos are taken today now that the waters have receded.
It was a flood to be remembered for a long time.
The dams are still at full capacity and the rivers are full of fish.
