Droughts And Floods In Australia

“Although New South Wales is not subject to the periodical showers of the tropics, a large quantity of rain falls throughout the year; hitherto the colony has been visited by a drought about every twelve years; the last one continuing from 1826 to 1829, during which period, little or no rain fell”

“1850 was all but rainless. Victoria and Tasmania were dried up, and on Black Thursday, 6th February,. 1851, the Barrabool Hills and great part of Victoria were swept by a fierce northern hurricane that “boxed” the scattered bush fires into one awful whole.”
