Update: If you’re wanting to see where Lavender’s Bridge in Bellingen is open go to the Kombu floodcam.
There’s lots of information available from the Bureau of Meteorology website about river heights but I find that it doesn’t really answer the important question most people have: when can I get across the bloody bridge(s)? Below is a quick summary table pulling together in one place
- the main four bridges in and around Bellingen – in town, Thora (if this one’s under no-one can get in our out of the valley and/or Chrysalis and Orama schools), Glennifer and Kalang
- what river height they close at, and
- live river height data from the Bureau of Meterology website (click the small picture to see full size graphs)
where it is/river
|Bellingen see on map||Lavender’s Bridge in town Bellinger River||about 4.9 metres|
|Thora see on map||Hobart’s Bridge near Chrysalis School Bellinger River||about 3 metres|
|Gleniffer see on map||Gleniffer Bridge near Gleniffer Hall Never Never Creek||anyone know?|
|Kalang||Moody’s Bridge Kalang Rd Kalang River||about 3 metres on the Kooroowi gauge|
