balonne river

Balonne River IMG 0728 - It's the mighty Balonne that gives the Australian outback town of Saint George its title of 'Inland Fishing Capital of Queensland', but it's a river that locals alternately love and hate. They love it for the recreational opportunities it offers, for its beauty, for the abundance of birds that it attracts to its calm waters and surrounding woodlands, and for the water it supplies for urban and agricultural purposes. But when the Balonne is in a rage it brings misery with it as its waters rampage across the landscape and through the homes and commercial premises of Saint George, leaving devastation and misery in their wake.
