One interesting difference is that strong La Nina conditions prevailed
in 1956 which often produces wet NSW-Qld Spring-Summers but we are
have moderate El Nino conditions.

I believe the Darling is the minor partner with less than 20% of
the flow of the Murray on average - highly variable though and
1956 had months of rain in the Murray catchment as well
as what came down the Darling.
