An area decimated by the NSW bushfires of 2019 has undergone an incredible transformation after recent wild weather.

Ebor Falls, at the Guy Fawkes National Park in the New England region, was ravaged by fire 12 months ago.

The fire burnt through 3500 hectares and a man was arrested accused of lighting it deliberately.

On Facebook, people called the site of the burnt and charred Ebor Falls “sad to see”.

“It will take years for it to get back to how it was,” one woman wrote.

However, given recent heavy rainfall due to a system off the east coast, Ebor Falls has made a remarkable transformation.

Nearby Guyra received 23mm in the 24 hours leading up to Tuesday at 9am.

People on Facebook called the now gushing falls “incredible”.

One woman wrote she visited Ebor Falls as recently as Friday and there was no water at all.

“That’s insane,” another woman wrote.

Another man added it’s “fantastic” to see.
