Hi Vicky

Thanks very much for bringing this to our attention. We really appreciate hearing feedback from the public users of the river level data.

Looking at the data we agree there is an error in the gauge reading at the moment. Our maintenance group has been notified and we'll let you know when it is fixed. In the meantime we will turn the data off on our website to avoid further confusion.

Regards

PADDLE FOR SALE. Arguably the best whitewater paddle ever.

The Werner Double Diamond is the the samurai sword of whitewater blades. Strong, light and beautiful to paddle with.

This one is only a couple of years old. No real damage, just a few scratches. This paddle retails for $620 Aud.
I'm selling it for $300.
specs and photos below:
Werner Double Diamond. Carbon fibre, foam cored. Neutral -bent shaft. 194cm long. 30 degree offset.

MSG me if you are interested. Paddle is in Tasmania.

It's a BARGAIN.
