Coffs Harbour Off The Beaten Path: 45 reviews and 109 photos
I had a bit of a problem here. Wasn't sure whether to list this under Ocean/Beach or what. This is what happens when there's over 200mm of rain in 24 hours. Bellinger River floods. Often.
Golf courses, parks, paddocks, some houses and always a road with bridge or two.
This time they lost all roads in and out of the town for two days. Miraculously, despite enough wood piled into it to build 50 houses, the bridge linking the town to North Bellingen survived.
The road to Dorrigo didn't. A bad washout occured halfway up the mountain side and the road was under repair for months.
This shot is taken about 5 kms in where I had to stop because the road was nearly two metres under water immediately ahead of me. This is a paddock (normally) at the side of the road.
