The History of the Station

The Cyclone Testing Station was founded in response to the the destruction caused by cyclone Althea to Townsville in 1971 and cyclone Tracy to Darwin in 1974. The Station's strategic location in Townsville has enabled it to serve not only Australia and North Queensland but also most other cyclone prone regions throughout the world.
