OK, next to the world’s big rivers it’s just a trickle, but it’s our trickle! The Snowy River flows from the highest mountains in the country down to the sea near Orbost.
With all the controversy about river levels and ‘environmental’ flows, it’s heartening to see that, at least when this picture was taken, it’s got a healthy flow. Judging by the colour of the water, I’m guessing it’s recently rained. In fact, the flow is so healthy that I’m sure we can see a white water rafting trip in progress! Definitely a couple of rectangular orange blobs with another one about 100m upstream. Lucky them, eh?
