We did good to get back when we did as the following day roads were closing. Today the rain continues to fall, rivers continue to flood, and some roads are closing. We watched the news tonight (not something we usually do), but we need as much information as we can get. Our trip South will involve anchorages in some of the flooding rivers. Looking at the news it will be weeks before the flowing flooding rivers are going to ease. there are towns out west of here being evacuated. The only way to go to avoid the rivers is out to the reefs and around the outside of Fraser Island, and with lows spawning up out of nowhere that could be an issue. Looks like we will sit tight for now.
Today there has been a strong wind warning issued for our area and South. 30kts SE.
