A visitor to Innisfail and the surrounding areas today would be hard pressed to find much evidence of this catastrophic event. Financial assistance from the Federal government and/or insurance has allowed repair or replacement of damaged or destroyed property to take place.
Today, I would like to show you Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic church, which was severely damaged in the cyclone, and has now been lovingly restored.
The roof reconstruction resulted in the removal of the former flat ceiling, to reveal the hidden timber structure. This has given a spacious, airy feel to the interior of the church.
