Abstract

On Thursday, 3 February 2011, Severe Tropical Cyclone (TC) Yasi Category 5 ravaged its way through Tropical Northern Queensland, Australia. The centre of this devastating system aligned almost directly with the small tourist village of Mission Beach, 138 km south of Cairns (Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology 2017). TC Yasi was to be the biggest cyclone system ever recorded to cross the Queensland coast (Hayes 2011), the ramifications of which would reach far and wide, altering lives, livelihoods and landscapes alike.
