I have been talking about flooding on the Hawkesbury-Nepean river for many many years. If you’ve arrived at this page as the result of a Google search, please consider these resources:

Original March 2022 post:

Flooding has again struck our community for the second time in 12 months.

This flood has risen to 13.7m (as measured at Windsor – which tends to be the benchmark), beating last year’s flood of 12.9m making it approximately a 1-in-20 year event.

This video was taken when the waters still had about 2 more meters to rise.

I’m indebted to the excellent Hawkesbury Flood Statistics facebook page for making excellent real-time data available about river heights and closures.

Here’s their summary after the waters subsided:
