For the past year and a half Charleville has received its lowest rainfall since records began. Jill Mobbs from "Gowrie" north of Charleville, has lived in the region for over 30 years and is no stranger to drought. "This is the worst drought I've seen, I didn't think it could be worst then 2002 but it is." "The country is devastating to look at, it's just so dry" she says. Jill says the drought has taken its toll on her family, "we're just very tired both mentally and physically." "But I guess we are tough old bushies and you've just got to keep going." The song that accompanies this interview is sung by Jill Mobbs.
