Ferny Creek in Flood
Approximately a third of the property lies on a floodplain bordered by Ferny Creek, as shown on the map of the property on the left, with the floodplain designated by the white line. There have been three major flood events in the past 10 years, resulting in the overflow of the Gilmour Park Retarding Basin and flooding of Ferny Creek and the surrounding area. The photos below, taken in February 2011, give an indication of the extent of flooding that occurs. Part of our vision for this property is that the floodplain be returned to its natural state within the bushland reserve.
