Enoggera Creek > St John's Wood, Enoggera Reserve

We have reports in from Charlie, upstream from Gresham St Bridge and Dick Harding, Royal Parade and Enoggera Reserve. The main damage in these areas, which missed the worst of Sunday's storm, was the floods on Thursday morning 20 November. JUST IN: Photos from the Scouts and Gresham Street Bridge sent in by Gabriel Dubler.

Bailey's Creek


The remains of a sandpaper fig stand on the edge of Bailey's Ck on the right and the flotsam against surviving trees to Chris' immediate left. Enoggera Ck is just to the left of the picture. Note the height of the flotsam. The ground level here is usually around 2-2.5 metres above creek level.
