The Townsville Local Disaster Management Group (TLDMG) is continuing to monitor the tropical low in the Coral Sea
For all updates on the tropical low, please refer to the Townsville Emergency Management and Disaster Dashboard, or Townsville Disaster Information on Facebook.
To assist Townsville Enterprise's efforts in preparation for the anticipated Cyclone Kirrily, and to support disaster planning, response, advocacy and recovery, we are seeking information from the local tourism and accommodation industry. This survey will also seek to understand ongoing perception and business impacts from the recent Cyclone Jasper and flooding event.
TEL encourages all tourism, hospitality and event businesses to provide feedback through the below short survey. If you would like to discuss or provide further insights, please email email@example.com.
Please note that operator specific data will remain confidential. The data collected through this survey will be integral to providing crisis updates to relevant Governmental departments and will greatly assist Townsville Enterprise in providing adequate support during crisis and assist us in delivering an effective recovery campaign when the timing is right.
