“The Great Gold Coast Cyclone” of 1954

ABC Broadcaster, Bern Young had never heard much about the "The Great Gold Coast Cyclone" of 1954. "It's as though, with the passing of time, we'd forgotten that the eye of a cyclone crossed right over the top of Coolangatta, wreaking havoc here and then continuing down the coast into NSW. Today's anniversary reminds us how important oral history is. Ten more years and these people and their stories could be gone or their memories faded."  For full story with audio and other links click here.
