Common situation here on the incredibly flat lands
the rivers and creeks meander over the land and then as the river dries up 
they form billabongs and waterholes.

It is literally possible for the water to flow in either direction when storms 
arrive as the water spreads out from the waterhole.

To be quite honest I have lived here for 20 years and don't know in what 
direction the local creek really flows although logically I know which way it 
is likely to flow.
