What's everyone's advice here? I'm flying out from Melbourne to Cairns next Monday (17th) and planning to take the Skyrail to Kuranda before going on a liveaboard for diving for 4 days from the 20th.
The news in the UK and Hong Kong are currently all about the flooding in Brisbane and Southeast Queensland but there's also news regarding the lack of food supplies to Cairns and surrounding areas. Local news stations online also seem to be suggesting that the Queensland government are trying to determine the northernmost border of the floods which may be drawn from Cairns southwards. I've contacted the dive company who's saying that it's business as usual, but I would hate if they are saying that if only to appease their paying customers!
What's everyone advice here? To go or not to go? I'm under pressure from my family to cancel but wouldn't want to do so unless there's sufficient evidence!!
