Abstract/Summary International House taken from near Services Road. The University of Queensland did not escape the effects of Cyclone Wanda when it dumped torrential rain in the south eastern corner of the state. The total rainfall between the 24th and 29th January was around 900mm and the river reached a height of 6.7 metres, more than four metres above normal. These floods were the worst to hit Brisbane since February 1893 when the river peaked at 9.3 metres.
