This summer is gonna be a wet one that’s for sure.
With flash flooding popping up all over the joint across Northern NSW and Southern Queensland.
Amazing footage has been taken across the states of rivers over-flowing, trees falling and trickling waterfalls now stopping traffic.
With heavy rain continuing to fall in Northern NSW, motorists travelling on Waterfall Way, Dorrigo, have been left to find an alternate route as Newell Falls overflows onto the road.

“Heavy rainfall is forecast to ease for parts of the Northern Rivers during [Tuesday] afternoon, and for the Mid North Coast overnight or early Wednesday morning… however, showers and thunderstorms will persist for the coming days and will continue to bring the risk of flash flooding,” the Bureau of Meteorology reported in a weather warning.
Tamborine Mountain Road (locally known as the goat track) at Mount Tamborine is currently closed due to a serious landslide. This part of the road is expected to be closed for significant time. Please avoid the area. #qldtraffic pic.twitter.com/M63JHXkpZR

Heavy rain on the east coast has turned the taps on at Sherrard Falls, on the aptly named Waterfall Way just out of Dorrigo in northern NSW. The traffic isn’t flowing, but the views certainly are! pic.twitter.com/JLAWNs4ito
