I visited Rockhampton on Monday and later posted some photographs of the racing Fitzroy. Val Majkus asked for more. This afternoon I decided to try for some images of the river east of the city, as it heads towards the Coral Sea. From Emu Park I travelled to Nerimbera and down to the boat ramp.
The river was quiet and creeping. Then I found a track up a hill near the primary school and got some shots looking back towards Rockhampton – unfortunately into the sun. In the third photograph you should be able to see some of Rockhampton city in the distance. The photographs were taken as the river peaked at 9.2 metres. Click on the images for a larger better view.
