The creek close to the Warrego highway before Withcott. Looking at the damage and debris (sorry, we were travelling quite fast when I took these photos). It was quite sad to see clothing, curtains, whitegoods and other things festooned through trees.
Tomato Land on the left. Roadworks are continuing at this intersection, too.
Debris piled up against trees, the creek is some distance away from here.
Helidon, before the bridge where the old road turns off to Grantham and the highway takes the Gatton bypass.
The little park on Helidon Creek, just before the bridge. All the amenities, toilet block, picnic tables, etc, have been washed away - they've replaced the dirt, too. Apparently it was all washed away.
More debris and you can see the height of the water. (Sorry about the quality!)
The creeks are much wider than they used to be.
On the flat, well almost, headed from Helidon to Grantham. The water here would have easily been over the top of the car, and the creek is quite a distance away, and the road is quite high. Again, you can see the debris caught against trees and fences.
Welcome to Grantham...

Aftermath - Grantham - travelling down the range 10.2.11
Down the highway from Toowoomba. Roadworks are ongoing and there are delays wher the highway is single lane to allow the road to be fixed. This is near the bottom of the range closer to Withcott.
