Unfortunately the river wasn`t always kind to the settlers and they had to endure many floods which wiped many of them out finacially. The great flood of 1867 had an even bigger impact. It peaked at 19.2 metres, caught many unaware and lives were lost. The Barnhouse still has signs of where the 1867 flood went thru, lucky it was 2 storey.
You may think that perhaps you recognise it..... you would be right....it`s featured in many commercials, photo shoots & music video clips. The owner is a very old guy who has let it go, its beyond him and its now derelict. Such a shame that a house of such significance will be lost.
