TOOWOOMBA RANGE RAMBLES
The Lockyer valley was the area destroyed by the creek of the same name. The media name it an inland Tsunami and it started in the Toowoomba City outskirts with a deluge of rain which transformed quickly to a flash flood.
The raging waters shock suprised with death and devastation the Toowoomba CBD then swept over the range into the Lockyer Creek catchment and swept away houses,farms,villages,towns in its path.
It was sobering to think about this as we walked down the range into the valley and skirted the cliffs of this now beautiful and peaceful place.
