Russell Crowe Posts Image Showing Unbelievable Impact Recent Rain Has Had On Australia
His land in New South Wales (NSW) was badly damaged after a fire ripped through the village of Nana Glen in November 2019.
The fires destroyed homes and land, with Russell's 400 hectares badly damaged, although at the time he said he was 'overall very lucky' that his home was saved.
Russel wrote on Instagram: "My place 10 weeks ago after the fire had gone through, and this morning after a big weekend of rain."
The first image shows the damage left behind by the fires, with grass and trees charred. There is little water in Crowe's dam, with smoke billowing up in the background.
But in the later photo, the rain has almost returned the land to its former state, with green and signs of life bursting through, transforming the land completely. The dam has refilled, with most of the grass and trees looking fresh and healthy.
Crowe shared quite different images back in November, saying: "I'm not in Australia. My family are safe, billeted with friends.

"Fire hit my place late in the day yesterday. My heart goes out to everyone in the valley."
The photos show the land burning, in images that we've become all too familiar with over recent months.
Russell even got stuck in when he was back in Australia, creating a make-shift fire truck to help battle the disaster.
He shared an image on Instagram, saying: "For those that have asked. This is what my fire truck looks like from the front. I've owned this truck over 20 years and it was already an 'old' truck when I bought it. Re-purposed to fight the good fight. I know... sexy truck for sure."
Farmers in rural parts of Australia have been celebrating today after rain finally arrived at their properties.
