First Creek Research
The Burnside Library history room has some great resources, am reading FIVE CREEKS of the River Torrens by J.W. Warburton. She also wrote The Paddocks Beneath, A History of Burnside from the Beginning, (of white settlement it needs to say!). There are many old photos to investigate. From a quick read it looks like there were damaging floods in 1889, 1931 and 1981.
