About the site


MARCH 06 2013:
With Warragamba Dam opening its floodgates after the recent rains, we decided to investigate the impact on the site of Emu Ford - the spot where Blaxland Wentworth and Lawson crossed the Nepean River on their "tour of discovery" in 1813. The waters had dropped a little but the river was still flowing rapidly below the Weir and was covering parts of the Great River Walk.
