atherton tableland and lumholtz lodge

My family is planning to spend 3-4 days in the Atherton tablelands this August and was wondering if anyone has any comments about Lumholtz Lodge. Has this area been badly damaged by cyclone larry? I've tried emailing Margit at Lumholtz Lodge but have not had a response these past 2 weeks.

many thanks

Hi, I have just returned from Carins, infact we flew out 10 hours before Larry hit. We were in Ravenshoe visiting family, which is very close to Atherton. All power and cell phone towers were knocked out, phones are back on now, so you should probably try to call.

Unfortunately,Lumholtz Lodge is actually located south of Atherton,and may like many others in the district received quite a substantial hit from Cyclone Larry.

I have heard that there are many still without phone lines. I would give it a week or so and retry to email. You have plenty of time until August and hopefully you won't need to find alternate accommodation.
