19Mackay would have a stinger problem; Hervey Bay should not (south of the tropics and the reef).
Even places that can be subject to flooding have out of flood areas (unless they are very flat inland towns).
It is often a good idea to live in rented accommodation in one fo these places for a while to get the lie of the land. Floods can go where you least expect.
Talk to the locals.

20I went back in 2011 and yes, to me it still is! Even after so many years.. And in my opinion it was more 'touristy' in 2001 then in 2011. But, I must admit, I was 18 in 2001 and when I was living in Cairns (as an exchange student) I was also going to school, had lots of friends, etc. Not quite sure if that had anything to do with it? It felt like home, as soon as I got out of the plane!
Young backpackers who are looking for awesome parties etc. usually tell me they hate Cairns, simply because it's not what they expected. But you just can't compare it to Sydney, Melbourne or cities like that! It's a smaller, very laid-back city, it has lots of great places to relax/visit and awesome nature. Atherton Tablelands just around the corner.. The Reef.. Daintree.. Lovely people.. Swimming pools to cool down in summer..
