Cairns Disaster Coordination Centre

The Cairns region is a beautiful, tropical area that is vulnerable to natural disasters. We are cyclone and flood prone. We’re neighbours to an old volcanic landscape in the Tablelands. We live very close to the sea and extensive areas of bush. There is one main road in and out.
