YOU'VE got to take your hat off to our village communities. They are one big family.
Extraordinary levels of compassion and going above and beyond to help a mate has held the little community of Telegraph Point together on Saturday after floodwaters ripped a path through properties, homes and small businesses.
One family, whose home has been destroyed, will be picking up the pieces but they know they won't be doing it alone.
They will be among many in their community facing a total rebuild.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Miller family who have been described as "good people, with a good heart".
"I am asking for a little help. My brother Chris and his partner Casey have lost all their possessions in the devastating floods at Telegraph Point," Chris' brother Andrew Miller said in launching the fundraiser.
"I know many people will have lost something today in this region, and the photos are heartbreaking. But my brother and his little family need your help.
"I'm asking you to please help where you can and donate to get these guys back on their feet.
"The photos speak for themselves, and as you can see, very little will be salvaged from their place. They will be starting with a blank canvas."
The fundraising target is $25,000.
