Water: it makes a difference

The forty plus millimetres of rain which has fallen in our district over the last week or so has made a huge and probably temporary difference to our minor streams.

Creeks which flow for only a few weeks of any given year have acquired a shining new life. That’s why, if you have the chance, it’s a good idea to get out into the bush as soon as you can after any heavy drop of rain. Sometimes the flow only lasts a few days.

Salters Creek, Castlemaine Diggings NHP, August 10 2013. Scenes like this may only last a few days.

The Fryers Forest creeks are a good example. Our picture shows a scene which is only on show if you’re quick on the uptake, and get out to see it while it lasts!
