I have researched and documented man made changes to the floodplain from
Wooyung to Brunswick Heads since 1887.
research has uncovered drastic changes to the natural drainage system
and liability for the flooding by both Government and Local Government
Agencies as well as Rutile miners in the late 50’s.
