It could be that the creeks will be flowing this summer. Which if it pans out would be good news for summer bushwalking.

In recent times I've tended to avoid longer trips in summer due to the heat and the difficulties in finding water.

La Niña events increase the chances of above-average rainfall for northern and eastern Australia during spring and summer.
Bureau has lifted its ENSO Outlook status to La Niña WATCH, meaning around a 50% chance of La Niña forming. This is approximately double the normal likelihood.
