Disaster strikes Maleny on Australia Day weekend.
Our office was without power, mobile phone reception, TV, landlines or internet communication.
Many fallen trees over power lines gave the district NO essential services, water, phone, electricity or internet from Sunday 7am 27th up to Wednesday 30th January noon.
Big Storm from x- cyclone Oswald – sent disaster through Queensland and our home town Maleny, Witta and Conondale areas.
No contact with the outside world – but we were safe and our guests experienced camping in style by candlelight. They certainly said they rested well with no distractions.
Luckily we invested in a generator and could cycle power to lights and kitchen and the pumps that run the water for guesthouse bathrooms. We managed making breakfast and meals for guests while the wind and rain stormed down on us.
Any one trying to contact us during this time – We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this act of nature.
Our well wishes and thoughts are with the people who have experienced disaster to their homes and business during these hard times.
Sun is out and cleaning has begun… helping hands are every where. Every thing looking pretty nice now. spick and span. Trees and garden look abit ratty… but with the heat I’m sure they will burst with new leaf very soon.
Next thing – It will Easter – lots to do ..
