Mundubbera has recorded its wettest November in over a century this year.

The North Burnett town was one of many Queensland towns that smashed their rainfall records last month.

Also situated near the Burnett River in the region is Dunollie Station which recorded its wettest November in 71 years.

This comes as Australia had its wettest November since records began in 1900, according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

It was also the country’s wettest spring since 2010 according to the Bureau’s spring climate summary.

The new Australian November average rainfall record stands at 72 millimetres, coming in at more than double the month’s original national average of 32 millimetres.

The previous November rainfall record, set nearly 50 years ago during the La Niña event of 1973, was broken by more than 2 millimetres.
