Cyclone Debbie caused a lot of destruction in March of 2017, bringing flooding rains throughout much of Queensland. Homes were flooded, bridges washed away and debris left as the floodwaters receded.

Many people have asked how we fared up on the mountain. Thankfully there was very minimal damage here and we were able to return to normal operations very quickly, ensuring wedding bookings weren’t going to be ruined by any flooding or damage.

Things did get pretty interesting though. As the water continued to flow, for a brief time we back Cedar ‘River’ Lodges. Just take a look at the flood waters that passed through our grounds.
