does anyone know if the rain falling at the moment is going to make it's way down the Cooper Creek or will it all go out to sea?

Reason I ask is that I am going to Innamincka in 4 weeks with my kayaks so not keen on getting flooded out this close to leaving!

Plan B is to go up the birdsville track to the Simpson anyway so it's a win win anyway but Innamincka is priority 1.

The rain in qld has almost all been coastal - so no, not going to end up out there.
There's been a lot of rain in NSW too - some of it further inland. I don't know where it will end up exact.

We did a part run up the Darling from Wentworth a few weeks back and compared to the last time we saw it a couple of decades back, it almost makes you cry.

Lets hope some of it makes its way down that great river and gives a bit of a flush.

Gossy the Bureau of Meterolgy site

bom rainfall map

showing where rain has fallen is a useful part of trip planning. As you can see from the map there has been very little rain likely to affect Innaminka.

Our Anna has no Idea as to where the rest of Queensland is when she openly states that the DROUGHT is Broken. The only drought in Queensland that has broken is the one in SE Queensland.

They are evacuating 9000 people in the Grafton area. The Clarence R goes to the ocean.

I am aware that here has been around the 100 mm of rain near St. George and there are reports of almost 200 mm in some areas. All that water is in the Barwon/Darling system.

The Barwon/Darling System is part of the Murray/Darling basin/catchment. Cooper Creek which flows past Innaminka is part of the Lake Eyre basin/catchment. So any rain that falls in the Murray Darling Basin will not affect Innaminka or Cooper Creek.
