Is anyone on the Queensland coastline at the moment give a quick weather summary about where they are now, or a general view of what its been like for a past few weeks.

I'm based in Sydney, and the news reports are stating bad flooding in the sunshine coast and a few months ago even worse.

I'm heading up that way in a week and I'm trying to get a feel on what to expect. Are many services out of action? Is it business as usual?

I've done the Sydney -> Carins route before in 2010 at the same time of year and the weather was perfect, but based on the current situation (and if the NSW summer is anything to go by) I'd like to know a little more before I arrive.

I can't answer for southern Qld, but here in Cairns we have had 36 inches of rain in the last 21 days! It has flooded, but receded in a day or two. Everything is running as per "normal."

I believe the south didn't get as much, so they should be fine too, but your best bet is to call or email a couple of Gold Coast businesses, such as backpackers and see what they say!

The trouble is, it's weather and unpredictable. So whats lovely and sunny today, could be a mess tomorrow.

I'm off to Melbourne this weekend and it could be anything there too from freezing to balmy.
