The remains of a buried vintage car sit in a drought-affected property located in the Goolhi area on the outskirts of the north-western New South Wales town of Gunnedah, Australia, on October 3, 2019. The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has declared the ongoing drought through the Murray Darling Basin to be the worst on record, with current conditions now exceeding the Federation Drought (1895-1903), the WWII drought (1937-1947) and the Millennium drought (1997-2009).

The plan will include a $650m upgrade of Wyangala Dam in the NSW central west and a $480m new Dungowan Dam near Tamworth. However, critics of the plan are calling for more immediate solutions.
