M’Leay River, February 2.-The floods in this district have caused great destruction to the standing crops and also to the maize stored in the barns from last year. The inundation was very rapid, and higher than has ever been Known by the oldest residents, excepting an aged black, who states that ” when a picaniny cabon water all the same.”

Yarra-bandini was completely covered, und for many miles around was one sheet of water, in some places 15 to 20 feet deep, and -a fleet of sailing craft could have sailed on the spot where the horses should have run on the 26th January. Messrs. Chapman, Rudder, Ducat, Scott, and the small settlers lower down, are sufferers by the loss of stock, maize etc.

One thought on “YARRABANDINI”

  1. Hallo,
    I wonder if you might know anything about John and Eliza Ward’s family. Their daughter Emma (our great-grandmother) was born on Yarrabandini in 1845. We’ve tracked the rest of the family, but can’t find when or where John Ward died. He was in the Royal Marines when he arrived in Australia.
