Current Flows

A look at the current flow along the river

Quick look at key river heights.

Also refer to the Basin Map & Gauges page for a more holistic view of the river system and incoming flows from other tributaries.

Note that these graphs show the actual reported heights from BoM. You can toggle the Actual and Baseline heights to get a smoother graph of the flows. The Baseline Height has an adjusted River Height where 0 represents the level that the river usually stops flowing.

No flow
Height where flow ceased was assumed to be zero if no historical data was found.
Poor flow
A level that is likely too low to kayak, with a flow under 2 Cumecs.
Low flow
A level that may be paddlable? The flow was calculated to be under 10 Cumecs.
Good flow
A flow over 10 Cumecs. Times two is 20 Cumecs and times five is 50 Cumecs.
Neutral
Flow unknown, but height suggests it should be fine to paddle.
Unknown
Unable to calculate the flow.

Many sites lack flood height information. If the high is significantly higher than a good flow height assume it is flooded

Minor Flood
Low-lying areas next to watercourses are inundated which may require the removal of stock and equipment. Minor roads may be closed and low-level bridges submerged.
Moderate Flood
Evacuation of some houses may be required. Main traffic routes may be covered. The area of inundation is substantial in rural areas requiring the removal of stock.
Major Flood
Extensive rural areas and/or urban areas are inundated. Properties and towns are likely to be isolated and major traffic routes likely to be closed.
