    When it flows in Summer, it's *the* place to be on a hot afternoon, but the temp. at the moment must be under 10 degrees in the water (16 on the veranda at the moment).

    I like it ! noisy isnt it, that would keep me awake if it was near the house- either that or I'd be getting up all night to go to the loo !!

    Yeah it's sometimes hard to tell if it's raining or just the creek flowing! But the sound is soothing overnight, so I tend to sleep quite well :)

    when we were living on our farm in mareeba, there was a creek like 100m away, we just got used to hearing the rapids :), probably even helped you relax when going to sleep :P

    We had constant rain yesterday and last night too (220mm 9am - 8am), then more rain until about 1pm, when we got a small break, and then drizzle and some heavy rain on and off since.
    Yep sure is :)
