Major floods have hit the New South Wales far north coast, with Murwillumbah and Lismore, the main areas hit.
Many parts of the Whitsunday coast in north Queensland are still without power and running water, several days after Cyclone Debbie tore through the region.
Murwillumbah area residents have sought refuge in the ceiling cavities and on the roofs of their houses, as emergency services are unable to dispatch boats due to safety risks.
