The drought conditions affecting most of the state are likely to continue into 2019, according to the DPI’s State Seasonal Update for December 2018.
The NSW Government has announced it will trial up to 10 SMART drumlines at Newcastle beaches from 1 February to 30 April 2019, in an effort to increase protection for beachgoers and minimise harm to sharks or other marine life.
DroughtHub is a one-stop source of information on NSW drought assistance and support services available for drought affected primary producers, their families and communities.
