A number of Barwon Shire Areas are eligible for flood and storm assistance from State and Federal Governments. Visit the Service NSW website where you can use the “Disaster Assistance Finder”. 

Alternatively give Service NSW a call on 137788 and they can give advice specific to your situation. I have spoken with them, they are standing by, ready to help.

Stay safe, ask for help if you need it.

Water is still moving down the river system. The first flood peak for Collarenebri and Walgett is expected to arrive in the coming days and may result in minor flooding. 

If you have an emergency, please call 000, and if it’s flooded forget it.

  • Listen to your local ABC radio station, follow NSWSES on Facebook or
