ⓘ Araluen, New South Wales

Araluen is a small town near Braidwood in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia, in Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council. It lies in the valley of Araluen Creek, that joins the Deua River at roughly the midpoint in its course. At the 2016 census, Araluen had a population of 168 people.

The name Burt was referring to water Lily or water lilies in the local aboriginal language. During European settlement, Burt was described as a broad alluvial valley with many natural billabongs covered with water lilies. Unfortunately, no such billabongs exist in the valley Burt today. As in most valleys of the rivers and streams in South-Eastern Australia, the natural landscape of the Creek and its valley were destroyed by rampant and extremely destructive gold mining during the gold rush in the latter half of the 19th century. The city experienced a decline after the flood in 1860 virtually destroyed the town, killing 24 people.

It is the second flood in March 2012, one person died.
