While lush fields and a much more full Burrendong dam have been welcome signs across the region, there's still a lot left to do before the drought can be considered overcome.
According to Katie O'Brien, one of the administrators at the Dubbo Aussie Helpers branch, says that farmers and grazers needs are adapting to the new pressures after a bounty of rain across the Central West in recent weeks.
"Donations right now are headed more towards things like gift cards to help out on the financial side of things, all the green is magic for the eye and it's great for our farmer's souls to see it happening, but there's still a lot of struggle," Ms O'Brien said.
"I say that the light's been turned on at the end of the tunnel, but we're not there yet."
Farmers are still struggling to stay financially solvent after many had to get rid of stock or produce during the drought.
"People can't just turn around and make money right away and a lot of people don't see the incredible it's taken just to get to this point," Ms O'Brien said.
"Right now, a lot of farmers no longer have the stock necessary to eat all this fabulous new feed and get to the markets."
"Crops are up, as you'd expect, they look magnificent, but there's no benefit until harvest, they're still going to need to make it across that line."
Ms O'Brien described continued donations and support for the region's farming community as 'more pivotal than ever'.
"It's going to take at least a few more years to recover," Ms O'Brien said.
"There's no quick fix, in real terms, the drought hasn't broken for a lot of people because they're still dealing with the wrath of what they've been dealing with for the last few years."
"We're still going to be as busy as ever and that sort of support is really pivotal, especially with regards to mental health."
While the imagery of the drought is etched into many farmer's minds, Ms O'Brien says that having vibrant fields and much fewer animals isn't much better.
"Seeing these paddocks full of grass and not seeing the stock you would normally have in there, it's a really big mind-game and it puts a lot more of that pressure on them about how they're going to make ends meet."
"Our farming community is amazing, they'll get it done one way or another, it's just about giving them some help to make it a bit easier."
