RISING floodwaters and the possibility of being stranded without supplies might terrify some, but Sophia Ramm thought the whole thing was pretty awesome.

The Emu Park woman was on the first SES boat back to dry land yesterday after Water Park Ck was inundated by a metre of water.

About 60 people were stuck on the Five Rocks side of the road and Sophia's group of eight were among them.

They were supposed to be there enjoying Five Rocks for just one night, but instead it turned into a weekend long ordeal.

The 21-year-old said her Dad had decided not to join her in the rescue boat and instead chose to stay behind with their cars.

And, Sophia said, if she didn't have to work she would have done the same.

"We have been here since 7am on Sunday and the creek was at 60cm," she said.

"Some guys got onto the SES and initially they were just bringing food but then they ended up evacuating.

"It was pretty awesome, if I had my way and we had enough food I would have just stayed over there. I love the outdoors."

Sophia said she had crossed the creek at 60cm in the past, before the construction of the logging track.

"It was a bit more concentrated flow in a couple of places now," she said.

"We went back up and waited under the eating area at Waterpark but it just kept going up.

"Walking to the pick up point was pretty awesome, it was like a jungle track."
