Not with that water ;)

That is the Dawson river and it flows North into the Fitzroy river.

There is enough water going down the Warrego, Balonne, Maranoa, Condamine, Macintyre rivers to fill the Menindee Lakes and to let SA have some LOL

Kev, don't worry about SA, do you think that they could spare some for WA. This is a BIG country, flooded on one side and dry as a bone on the other.

Cheers

Wow. Had lunch there last Sunday. It was amazing then seeing where the water went over the road between Taroom bridge and the Fitzroy Dev Road Turn off. Looking at the water lapping the toilets in town now the road will be pretty damaged when it recedes. You could see where the water had been across the road even before Wandoan. Like many I have travelled there and Charleville many times and cant believe what's happening. Unreal stuff.

As at 4:30pm the releases from Beardmore Dam were 245,000 ML/d
So there is a heap more water yet to head down the river to SA

Ok, this could be a stupid question but hey, as i will be there in July, what are the chances, with all this rain, of Lake Eyre filling again? Please have the decency to smile as you scoff me for this lol :-)

"what are the chances, with all this rain, of Lake Eyre filling again?"
It certainly wont FILL just from this lot. That takes flows from 3 or 4 river systems to arrive simultaniously & hasn't happened for years.
It is however looking good for a flow to come in via the Cooper creek and put a splash in the bottom. Local rains around the Birdsville track have got a few of the creeks flowing & a small flood is currently filling Coongie Lakes which will need to overflow then fill Lake Hope & down accross the Birdsville track. With this flood pushing down behind it may well be enough to reach Lake Eyre. More rain will need to fall & if it does July could well be a good time.
Cheers Craig..............

Most of this flooding that's in the news, is in the Darling R catchment...

The amount of water that's headed for Lake Eyre atm may just about cover the bottom, if/when it all gets there...
I reckon we will need to see another 'significant weather event' ( particularly in the Georgina / Diamantina R catchments) for L. Eyre to have any chance of even a partial fill... A bit more in the Cooper Ck catchment wouldn't go astray either;-)

Planning to be in the area myself sometime in July, so I'm hoping the catchment does get a bit more rain;-))

The Thompson/Barcoo have been in flood for weeks so they may be enough water coming from there to put some in Lake Eyre
