Bribie Island Washovers and Breakthroughs by John and Janice Groves

Subtitled ‘A short pictorial history’ this book was written in response to the breakthrough on Bribie Island in 2022. This happened during a high tide and rough weather from Cyclone Seth. There have been a few theories for the breakthroughs. Some say Mother Nature, others say man-made. The Authors invite the reader to make up their own minds after reading the book which includes colour photographs, newspaper articles, diagrams, correspondence, documents and a hydraulic report from 1994.

There was a previous breakthrough on Bribie Island in 1943. The Authors document this breakthrough and other washovers that occurred in the last 100 years in a very readable way in this 92 page book that would be of value to anyone interested in reading about this phenomenon.
