Magnetic Island now has a brand new lake right at the ferry terminal .What is known locally as "The Hole" filled with runoff from the torrential rain and high tides. Floating about in it is a wide variety of rubbish , signs , puzzling bubbling in two spots as if an eruption is imminent .
Nearby rock wallabies took advantage of the sun to come out of crevices and dry out .
Overnight , the bedraggled fairies at the bottom of our garden had exploded and turned into something entirely different , the seasick hibiscus flower still limp .
The Queen of the Jungle's residence began to leak and SES promptly put a tarp over the roof. During the deluge a large boulder fell onto the road at Horseshoe Bay and was removed by a bulldozer . A footbridge on the new Nelly Bay walkway was closed for a time due to debris brought down by fast running water pouring from the hills.
