Cyclone information

Council has prepared cyclone information in different formats to ensure all sections of our community can Plan. Pack. Listen. 

Auslan

We have two films in Auslan to assist people with hearing impairment to be best prepared for cyclones and storm surge flooding.

Individual copies of the films are available from Deaf Services Cairns or by contacting Council's Disaster Management Unit by phone on (07) 4044 3377 or email disaster@cairns.qld.gov.au.

Audio books / DAISY talking books

We have produced MP3 audio book versions of our Preparing for Cyclones information guide. You can listen to the various tracks below:

People with low vision

We have adjusted our Preparing for Cyclones brochure ( PDF, 2.5 MB ) to be more accessible for people with low vision.

People with communication difficulties

Council and ARC Disability Services have developed an easy-to-read guide to cyclones for people who have complex communication needs. You can View the Get Ready ... for cyclones as an e-Book below or download the PDF version
