A dam good sight
Tinaroo Falls Dam has reached 100 per cent capacity, flowing over the dam wall on Friday much to the interest of locals who stopped at the base of the dam wall to witness the spill, the first time since 2019.
It comes as no surprise, given the heavy rainfall that has fallen in the region so far this year, with Atherton recording 566mm in January – 200mm more than the last two years – and another 200mm in the first 11 days of February.
Walkamin has recorded 160mm to date this month, while Mareeba has had 120mm.
