Inland Tsunami - Toowoomba  - January 2011          Image - Courtesy of Yahoo News

Much has happened since 2009. 

After a long-term drought, culminating in our worst Bushfire Season, we experienced some of the worst floods in our history. 

The Lockyer Valley, west of Brisbane experienced an "Inland Tsunami", as Australia experienced weather extremes that left many dead, destroyed homes and livelihoods and broke the hearts of survivors.

Whilst these widespread rains brought disastrous floods, they also replenished our rivers and floodplains, enabling a resurgence in farming and pastoral activity.
