Queensland has just come out of a much warmer and drier winter than normal, with much of the drought-stricken state receiving almost no rain for the whole season, according to the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM).
Several significant cold snaps in July were the only remarkable weather events in what the Bureau of Meteorology has labelled an average winter.
Much of the state has seen great rainfall over winter, with only the north and central coast missing out.
