Brisbane Floods Photos

Some of my pics from around South Bank and the city centre during the flood. Of course it would make more sense if you knew what it normally looked like....


The empty super market by the hostel on Wednesday.


The William Jolly Bridge is totally empty...


Flooding by the museum at the intersection of Melbourne and Grey streets.


Melbourne street, West End.


The Botanical Gardens.




Sandbagging in the city centre in prep for the flood peak.


The Brisbane river by Parmalat factory.


Parmalat factory (my workplace) is flooded.

The river coming up the lawn at the State Library.

More sandbagging. The height of the 1974 flood is shown on the left. This was originally expected to be worse but peaked 1m lower than this point.


The city centre.

Eagle street in the city centre.


The state library and cultural centre area. It's still closed off and will be for a few more weeks probably for clean up.


The stadium in Milton.

Hey Ammon,
Nice apocolyptic feel to the photos. Of course now they had a cyclone, hope you weathered that one as well. LOL
