Cyclone Information

20 February 2015

In response to the impact of cyclones Lam and Marcia on communities in north Queensland on Friday 20 February the Queensland Museum is liaising with community museums and historical societies across the region to provide advice and assistance.

Due to the severity of the weather conditions, there is potential for small museums and historical societies to be affected.

Community-based Museum Development Officers have been liaising with these groups to provide collections-related disaster information and support.

Anyone seeking advice about disaster preparedness or response in regard to significant community collections should in the first instance contact:
