Nach Der Flut, Brisbane, Australien. After The Flood, Brisbane, Australia.

So many people have popped into Australiss to ask me about the floods in Queensland and in particular, Brisbane  over the last week or so.  The big fat question often asked is, ‘Is it really as bad as what they report here on the news in Germany?’

My answer was, ‘It’s worse.’  I think this will be the last post on the Brisbane Floods but for Germans wanting to see UNFORGETTABLE photos of what really happened in that beautiful country then log onto:

Click on ‘UNFORGETTABLE PHOTOS OF THE BRISBANE FLOOD’ on the top left hand corner.  There you can see approximately 300 photos of images that will shock you and make you realise the reality of the devastation there.

Row ,row, row, your boat gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.  For Brisbanites, they should change the last word in this nursery rhyme to ‘nightmare.’

One the positive side, 60,ooo people alone in Brisbane registered all in all to help the victims and to help with the filthy clean up.  Unbelievable I say.  That is true Aussie Mateship!

  1. You could put them on to my blog for a personal story as well as West End photos.
    We don’t know what was reported overseas, but believe me , it was very bad. Please tell everyone that Brisbane is quickly recovering. Lot’s of house will be a long time out of action, but the CBD and many businesses are up and running and people are working like stink to put things right.
