Check out the path they travel in the bottom graph here : http://www.bom.gov.au/weather/wa/cyclone/about/climatology.shtml

Overall cyclones off the northwest coast follow a much more predictable path than off the Queensland coast. Indeed the southwest Pacific basin has the highest percentage of cyclones having 'erratic' tracks of anywhere in the world. Those systems that markedly change their course or intensity close to the coast present the greatest challenge to forecasters and decision-makers in the community.

It looks like a kid broke his spriograph but continued on anyway. With predictability like that, I dont think it does any good to try and dodge them. Better to belt up and hang on. Do any A2K's live in central queensland that you know of ?

if hingehead is at home, he will be right in its path. And this one is a f@cking MONSTER.

Check out Hingehead's The Cairns Diaries - this cyclone has been followed closely, starting toward the end of page 10:
