Cyclone exhibition set to kick off with expert talks
THE Museum of Tropical Queensland is marking the launch of its new cyclone exhibition with a series of expert talks on the subject at 12.30pm each Sunday in November. The new exhibition, Come Hell or High Water, uses stories, photographs and artefacts to reveal how cyclones have impacted North Queenslanders over the last century.
Museum of Tropical Queensland Director Peter McLeod said the talks would look at cyclones from a number of different angles, from social to scientific.
‘‘The Come Hell or High Water exhibition illustrates the impact of cyclones on the life and the lives of people in the region, so it’s fitting that our talks are from both scientists and ordinary people,’’ Mr McLeod said. The series will begin with curator Robert de Jong giving an overview of the major new Come Hell or High Water display and its development on Sunday, November 3.
