The Prime Minister and the Opposition Leader have put differences aside to properly address drought-stricken NSW.
Both Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese visited the Central West on Thursday to speak at the 2019Bush Summit.
A large amount of money is being invested in roads and the "the bush is not broken, the bush is surviving and the bush will thrive", Mr Morrison said during his 30-minute speech delivered at the summit in Dubbo.
Mr Albanese said people were tired of conflict in politics and he aimed to be the Labor leader and "not the opposition leader".

Mr Morrison spoke about the billions of dollars his government had already spent helping farmers and country communities.
More support through the farm household allowance, funding to manage pests and weeds, extra mental health assistance and money for charities supporting vulnerable communities were among the measures already being delivered, Mr Morrison said.
Mr Morrison also spoke about the country councils who have also been provided with up to $1 million in funding.
"Any level of cash the government believes should be injected into regional and rural communities we will support," Mr Albanese concurred in his speech.
After the speech Mr Morrison took a range of questions from the floor about extra roads funding, the Murray Darling Basin Plan, subsidies and population growth.
In response, Mr Morrison said if more subsidies for things like fodder were introduced that would push up the price and the Murray Darling Basin Plan could not be changed unless the states agreed.
