Welcome rain drenches Bundaberg Region

Welcome rain on Moore Park Road
Water on Moore Park Beach Road this morning after last night's rain.

The Bundaberg region has been given a welcome drenching with good rainfall overnight in most parts of district including falls above 50mm.

In the 24 hours up to 9am this morning Bargara had 69mm, while Gooburrum had 50mm and Moore Park Beach 83.

Water covered Moore Park Beach Road in several places – a rare sight in recent months.

Alloway cane and peanut farmer Dean Cayley was delighted with the welcome rain overnight.

“We had 25mm at Alloway and have had up to 160mm in the last two weeks,” Dean said.

“This rainfall will definitely put moisture into the ground and hopefully we’ll get some run-off to help fill the dams up and recharge the underground.”

Other substantial falls include Gregory River 60mm, Bundaberg South 30, Gaeta 27, Childers 25 and Woodgate 22 while Gin Gin had just 4mm.

With showers and rain forecast for the rest of the week, there should be smiles on the faces of gardeners and farmers around the Bundaberg Region.
