There are small patches of major flood damage (around Tully, some riverside suburbs of Brisbane, and Ipswich), but the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast were not touched, almost all of Brisbane City is back to normal, and up north, the majour tourist places are ready and waiting for the tourists to return.
Brisbane's South Bank is ready and waiting with the beach and pool open for business (though one small part is yet to be re opened - but you can swim now, and the weather is fine!)
This time of year is wonderful in Brisbane - usually bright blue skies and long hours of wonderful sunshine, which is great for tourists.
This week I have been to South Bank on three occasions, and it was wonderful. (You can still see workers trying to resolve some minor issues, there, and the new ABC studios as well as extensions to the Convention centre continue, but only cause minor irritations. Otherwise all is well.
