Flooding in Queensland?... hmmm

4 Feb 2009 Kiki009 asked

Hey all,<BR><BR>I was wondering if anyone had information or advice on going to Australia anytime within the next six months with this whole flood going on in Northern Queensland. I put some money down for Sunshine Trail (reverse) June 6th, but I don't wanna tour underwater cities!<BR><BR>Thanks!

    North Qld is flooded at the moment(townsville).Infact as we speak 56% of qld is flooded.This is due to the summer wet season and ex tropical cyclone ellie.They expect waters to start going down soon and by soon as it’s winter you will fine!

    so im traveling to cairns next week for the reefs and rainforests… i havent heard anything about trip changes though but im assuming we can’t trek through rainforests if it’s flooded…

    does contiki alter their trips when this stuff happens?

    Yeah i’m leaving for a contiki trip in new zealand starting next week and then folowing that trip i’m doing the beaches and reefs trip up the coast in australia.

    does anyone from contiki have any suggestions to help ease some fears that some of us have regarding the flooding and how it will affect our trips?! because if alternate plans need to be made i’d prefer to know in advance!
