East coast farmers are receiving much needed rainfall with one Cranbrook farmer describing it as "absolutely beautiful" after receiving about 30 millimetres.
Townships in the North-East have water restrictions in place and Cranbrook, near Freycinet National Park, is experiencing stage two restrictions.
Cattle and sheep farmer Steph Brouder said her property had been in drought for eight years, forcing them to destock cattle, but Thursday's rainfall provided hope.
"This rain is absolutely beautiful...it's the best rain we've had in a very long time," she said.
"I hope it keeps on going, we need a whole heap more rain.
