While a tropical low over the Pilbara has brought significant rain across Western Australia over the past week, the Ngaanyatjarra Lands and other parts of the northern Goldfields have experienced a particularly wet summer.
Jody Brown has lived in Warburton, 1,000km north-east of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, for around eight years, but said he had never seen the town wetter.
“It’s the greenest I’ve ever seen it, the grass is so long everywhere,” Mr Brown said.
“There are animals and wildlife and all sorts of things everywhere.””
