This above is an emergency warning issued by the Gold Coast Council in late January 2013, during a weather event that wasn’t really much more than your average garden variety cyclone that hit the coast of Central Queensland 500 K’s away to the north.

The image below is Alberton just 6 months ago after Cyclone Debbie hit Mackay and the Whitsundays about 1200km to the north.


Alberton’s a great place to build a harness racing club isn’t it? An absolute cracker.

As long as you can swim.
