On where I won't be going in Australia

If I needed an additional reason not to go biking in Queensland next year, (quite aside from the fact that it doesn't meet my requirement of bordering on the Indian Ocean), this news item on the CBC rather provides it. While the flooding will be over by the time of my visit, chances are that much of the tourist infrastructure will still be down.

Whatever the "Strine-ism" for "God help the Queenslanders" is, I wish it on them. Cyclone Yasi on top of the saturated ground is going to make one hell of a mess.
