Drought Assistance Information
The Southern Downs was drought declared in May following extremely dry conditions and little to no rainfall for many months.
While we can’t make it rain, there are other ways our farmers can be supported through this incredibly tough time.
There are a number of government and community drought-assistance and financial support programs available to farmers who are adversely affected by drought.
