ABC Rural: Outback Northern Territory hit with soaking rain, breaking dry stretch

You are here


It has been a wet week across much of the Northern Territory, with many cattle stations receiving their first rain for the season and in some cases the first rain of the year.

In the past week 43.8mm has been measured in the rain gauge at the Alice Springs airport, well above the town's average November rainfall of 28.1mm.

Further afield the rain was welcomed at Delmore Downs in Central Australia, where 93mm of rain fell over the week.

Owner Brad Vickers said the station looked incredible, and other than some small rain in October, it was the first downpour since January.
