Australia has been experiencing droughts and floods since it was first discovered by Captain Cook.
“there is little doubt that Australia is subject to long periods during which dry seasons prevail, and again, intervals of some years, in which there is a prevalence of floods” – 1868
Aborigines said that the climate used to be perfect, but was ruined by the white men.
