This week marks 10 years since record floods started to peak in central Victoria.
During the crisis our photographers took to the air to survey the disaster, which affected thousands of homes and business across the region.
The floods ended what became known as the Millennium drought, with heavy rain recorded from September 2010 through until January 2011 thanks to a La Nina weather pattern. Rainfall totals of 100-300 millimetres were recorded.
The water eventually flowed north and caused lasting problems for the Kerang district.
A state government review later put the damage bill at $1.3 billion.
The disaster prompted a major overhaul of the state's flood mapping and preparations, including the construction of new levees to protect properties.
