Does anyone know of a site that you can check on recent rainfall to a location. I have looked at the bureau of metorology site but can only find average rainfalls for a location. maybe it is there but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks

BJ, it is an excellent vehicle off the beaten track. I am guessing that it is at least as capable as the 100 series, but with a couple of extra things that may give it the edge. The variable ride height means you can jack it up to increase ground clearance, and it has two diff locks.
Even on really rough tracks the ride is eerily quiet and smooth. It has done 160,000 km and still feels tight and like a new car. My wife drives it most days and wasn't too impressed when I got back from the big Easter trip with smashed front and rear windows, and full of red dust. Had it detailed and is like new again.
Drawbacks are poor fuel economy, and you can't get it gassed because of something to do with the oxygen sensors. I have never liked the automatic transmission (4 speed), and the cruise control is very annoying. Other cars steer better on the bitumen.
You can pick one up for 40 to 50 grand. For that price you won't get a more luxurious vehicle with outstanding touring capability. The space and comfort, even for the rear passengers, are awsome.Bob

David,

If you go to the BOM site, click on the state, then go to the Observations Index there should be daily, weekly and monthly rainfall bulletins available. If you want any more info you will have to ring the state Regional Office.

Stephen.
