Tropical cyclone Seroja ripped across a 1,000km stretch of WA, leaving a trail of damage.
Now that the cyclone has come and gone, many regional Western Australians are assessing the damage and counting the cost of the destruction left behind.
Northampton, alongside beach town Kalbarri, was the worst impacted by the category three cyclone, which has left many without homes and businesses destroyed.
Elizabeth Rae from Northampton has shared photos showing their Growplay Monkey Bars surviving the full force of the cyclone!
Northampton, which has a population of about 800 people, is known for it’s remarkable ability to produce AFL footballers, including inaugural Eagle Andrew Lockyer, former Fremantle star Paul Hasleby, West Coast premiership player Daniel Chick and Geelong champion defender Harry Taylor.
Elizabeth is our photo competition winner for April and has won a $250 Growplay Gift Card to grab some new accessories!
We are glad to hear everyone is safe and well, and we send our thoughts to all those who have been affected.
