The Wash

During heavy rains it can more than double in size reaching a depth of about 4.5M while in flood. Normal depth is 3M. Current visible depth of the sinkhole is around 4M.

As the water drains away at the end of winter a stream will form from the sinkhole to the creek & can flow for some days. It is not known if this is the water that flowed in or from another source.
