It’s been 100 years since our town was almost wiped from the map. Thirty lives were lost when the 1918 cyclone ripped through our fledgling town on January 21, 1918. The huge storm flattened much of the region and inundated large parts of the town, with waves up to three metres tall rolling down Sydney Street. Exhibition runs at Mackay Regional Council from Jan 20 - Feb 16
