I felt a bit of a "woos" (Urban dictionary - definition 1) in asking Dave to accompany me, but the path to the Falls is often wet and slippery, and the steps are a bit steep. So I felt reluctant to go there by myself. And anyway it is more fun to go there with someone else, and to swap second-hand stories about how high the river is reported to have been on other occasions, etc. Notably, that the Kangaroo River has been over the wooden bridge.
Today it was no-where near touching the bridge, but if there was a tree washed down that could easily cause the river to bubble-up and over the bridge.
My friend Rod McDonald has posted a brief video from the Bridge. Hopefully you can watch it.

This is my still image from the same spot.

The roar was extraordinary.

is the deepest I have ever seen.
The brown stain is from the Button Grass in the upland swamps.
