Kate Carr - Brisbane River

from by Various



In January this year the Brisbane River astounded me and nearly everyone else by widly flooding its banks.
It wasn’t just a little flood, this was considered a one in 100-year event - whole suburbs were inaundated and the entire city was shut down for several days.
Brisbanites, including me via the internet, were reduced to staring in stunned amazement at the dramatic transformation the flood had wrought on the city.
I grew up living near the Brisbane River, and remember it as a sedately winding dirty brown waterway, which was often being dredged.
My track for Rivers Home is about the river’s transformation during that week or so in January.
