You heard that right, Australia's BOM is saying the national average rainfall is 354.7mm, 70 percent above normal and second behind 1973-74 when over 419mm was recorded.
Back in 1973-74 one of the strongest La Nina events on record was the culprit behind the record breaker. This year was a La Nina so it was no wonder the land down under saw so much rainfall.
Southern Australia had the third wettest summer, NSW the 5th, Queensland the 6th, and Northern Territory 8th.
It was a good 10 years of drought for the nation but this much rainfall at once has cost lives and property to be lost on large scales.
