The Mighty Murray River in the #lanepoolereserve is running at incredibly high levels 🤩

This picture of the pumping rapids at #Dwarlindjirraapp are well over the height of the normally pronounced rocks and fast moving water levels are almost covering to top of the stair access to the river.
Even though the water (at points) looks calm on top - there is a wild undercurrent, rocks and huge amounts of debris in the water that cannot be seen.

Bobs Crossing - There is no Crossing
Chuditch/Island Poole - There is no Island
Nanga Bridge - water currently at 4m height
#MurrayValleyTrails via Nanga Entry Station, road conditions are okay, but 4WD recommended 👍

If you plan to Visit Dwellingup this weekend, make sure you call into the Dwellingup Trails and Visitor Centre for up to date information ✅

Travel with caution, drive safe, stay a little longer and enjoy your #wildatheart adventure 🌳
