A search is continuing for a man who went missing in floodwaters near Kyogle during heavy rainfall that hit the New South Wales coast and Sydney.
Rain gauges as far north as the Gulf of Carpentaria and south to Ulladulla have received decent rainfall in the last 24 hours, some of which caused dangerous flooding.
Launceston's flood levees have been hailed as a game-changer in minimising the impact of the June flood emergency.
