The river has gone back down now, but from this photo I took today you can see the brown footpath in the bottom right which was submerged before.

If you want to see the still very visible signs that there was one torrential downpour last week, have a look at Kooyong Tennis Club, half the courts are submerged with water half way up the net. Not to mention St. Kevins Oval which looks more like a lake. (best view is on the Glen Waverley line between Kooyong and Heyington stations). It appears the flood barrier that is meant to keep the water out, is keeping the water in, it's going to take a long time to drain since it's almost been a week already. May have to pump it out by the looks.

Melbourne is unpredictable weather wise and last week proves it
But have you noticed that we protect ourselves when the rain comes
few examples of not wanting to deprive ourselves when the rain unexpectedly hits town

Telstra Dome - only stadium in Oz to have a roof (size of football oval)

Rod Laver Arena - retractable roof

MCG - the best drainage system in the world ...... nothing can stop this ground
