Kombu Floodcam: Flooding is a fact of life in Bellingen – and one of the key bits of information many of us in town need to know is if the main bridge through town is open. The livestream below comes from a camera provided by and located at Kombu Wholefoods, with additional running costs kindly sponsored by local IT business Snapfrozen.
Bellingen Council / Bellingen SES Floodcams: Bellingen Shire Council, in collaboration with Bellingen SES, have also installed a number of floodcams at key bridges across the valleys that update every 30 minutes. They have given us permission to share them on this page. Queries about these images should be directed to Bellingen Council.
Bellingen Weather Station: There is also a weather station located @ Kombu Wholefoods. You can check out all the live information – including rain rate, total rainfall, air quality and more on the Bellingen Weather website. Discussion, forecasts and more can be found on the Bellingen Weather News page.
Live river heights for local rivers (Kalang / Never Never / Bellingen / Coffs Creek) – including approximate flood levels – can be found on this page.
Local rivers – even as far as Lavenders Bridge – are impacted by the tides at Urunga. The chart below shows the tide times for Urunga. Click on the arrow on the right hand side for high and low tide times. Tidal impacts are delayed into Bellingen (by a couple of hours) and are significantly less than the impact of rainfall, but can be useful at flood times. Thanks Idris for the suggestion 🙂
