2009 Water Levels: Walyunga and Toodyay Ti-trees Wooden Gauge Readings

The information provided in the table below relies on paddlers emailing rokhor@iinet.net.au with the water level if they're paddling there, or passing through.

Please . . .

  • Note that we use the wooden post at the main launching/landing place at the lower carpark at Walyunga;  read upstream side of post: the notches indicate the height in increments of O.1 m
  • The Day One ti- trees gauge is at the end of a patch of trees just before you enter Long Pool; height is in increments of 0.2m;
  • State time and date of reading.

 From the Walyunga Ranger, Steve Strachan:

Please note:

  • Walyunga-Avon Valley National Park annual passes may be obtained by ringing CALM 9334 0333. $20 or order online: visitor park passes
  • Park gates open at 8am and shut at 5pm
  • Obey the road rules: speed limits, STOP sign
  • Take home your paddling litter: gaffa tape, foam bits, mars bars wrappers, etc

Thank you to all paddlers for your co-operation.
