The green hills

Last time I was here the drought was pretty bad. I took this photo from the same spot last time - compare the colour!
There has been lots of rain in many parts of Australia which has eased the pain in many areas. However some parts of the country are still in drought, up to 10 years in some parts.
Some of the major cities are still on water restrictions, with each more severe restriction level getting labelled as Stage 1, Stage 2, etc. This site details some of the official nature and penalties of the restrictions, and this is Victoria's Water situation.
