A large area of the country's interior and south is receiving its heaviest rain in years turning recently dusty ground into slushy mud.
Some have gathered more than 50mm in a day for the first time in at least three years.
Woomelang in the Victorian Mallee picked up a massive 59mm in the 24 hours to 9am Thursday, their highest 24-hour total in six years.
Over the border in South Australia's northeast, Erudina received 56mm, a three year high.
It also poured over far western parts of New South Wales and Queensland where White Cliffs (41mm) and Orientos Station (51mm) had their heaviest in about 18 months.
This is a very unusually wet event for November because there is usually much less moisture in the atmosphere at this time of year, it is more akin to the end of summer.
For Woomelang and Erudina it's their heaviest November rain in more than 80 years.
This has left western and southern parts of the Murray-Darling catchment with significantly above average rainfall this month with help from big rain only last weekend. The Lower Lakes in SA will surely benefit.
Rain has almost totally cleared from these parts as the moist, unstable airmass heads further southeast.
