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.
