Moruya River - 1925 Flood Level Reports Summary

In May 1925, the area around Moruya suffered the most severe flooding since white settlement in the mid-1800s. The Moruya River overtopped the bridge and broke both banks causing extensive flooding in the Mullenderree area north of the town as well as inundating a significant portion of the town centre. There are many 1925 flood level reports from such sources as the Moruya Examiner newspaper, floodmarks left on buildings and interviews with people who were Moruya residents in 1925. As the flood occurred 67 years ago, there have understandably been some discrepancies associated with several of these reports. This document collates and summarises the various 1925 flood level reports and investigates some of the discrepancies.
