We are all well aware of the heavy rainfall faced over the past few days.
At Sydney Olympic Park this rainfall led to the Highest King Tide we have on record at 2.38m on Sunday 5 June.
This is by far the highest reading recorded since we started keeping records from 2001. The next highest was captured on 22 July 2009 when the tide reached 2.32m.
Impacts of the rainfall on the Badu Mangrove Boardwalk
- The Badu Mangrove Boardwalk in Bicentennial Park sustained some damage with floating boardwalk pieces detaching
- This particular area of the Boardwalk is used weekdays for school excursions, which posed an interesting challenge as we had schools booked in for the week
- We were able to respond quickly with construction and repair work conducted on Monday to ensure the area is now safe and open to the public and available for use by our school student visitors
