These photos were taken on the 25/09/2016 by NSW SES when the Lachlan River was close to its peak of 10.67m. The inundation extents were derived by field assessment conducted by FRNSW on the 26/09/2016.

They represent an estimation of flood water extents for the assessed area and are not intended to be comprehensive in coverage.
