Located in the arid heart of Central Australia, Alice Springs climate is renowned for the sunny days. Except for the occasional dust storm, most days are filled with blue skies.

Rainfall is a rare occurrence in Central Australia compared to other parts of the continent, yet when it does rain and depending on the storm severity, the amount of rainfall and where the rain does fall in the region, the rain can bring flash floods and torrents, with the deluge sweeping through formerly dry channels and sandy riverbeds. Such an event can fill the usually dry Todd River, whilst locals come out to enjoy the spectacle of a flowing river.

Following are some images of the unusual wet weather conditions.
