My brother is in Tully and we are trying to get to him but Townsville police have just informed us that pacific highway north of townsville is closed to tourists and even us and to find another way inland. Tully is completely shut down to anyone who doesn't live there and you will need ID to get through. Get a map and go inland. I know the Palmerston and Gilles highways are open through Atherton as my sister in law got through yesterday. If that helps good luck. Also, lots of food and petrol shortages as well.
