King Tide and Long Wait for CityCat Ferry

Bayside at Manly, boats in the marinas certainly saw an increased water level but the King Tide caused no real problems here.  Residents in Albion were affected by some tidal flooding.

The HeraldSun.com.au has reported on the state of the Brisbane CityCat ferry service and $100 million rebuild cost estimate.  Follow the link for the news and a great picture of the Sydney Street Ferry terminal.

Over the past eight days transport by bus and train has been free to assist residents and volunteers.  Free public transport stops on Monday when passengers will pay an additional 15% on top of the pre-flood fares.

  2. We so much enjoyed being at Kangaroo Point, so close to the city. We can't go back at this stage. Although the docks at Dockside Marina were not too badly affected, the water was chest high in the laundry/shower block. Who knows what hazards are still in the river. Recovery will take a long time.
