watery wednesday: Too much water
Storms have dumped tonnes of water on to southeast Queensland in the last three days, flooding low-lying areas and causing homes to be evacuated.
On the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, traditional favourite holiday spots for New Zealanders, gale force winds lashed the resort towns.
Waves offshore rose to 7m while wind gusts over 100km/hr were reported.
I saw this shag at a private jetty on a private island on the Gold Coast. It took off as soon as I got near.
