Heron Island is fine despite Sunday launch being cancelled

HERON Island has suffered minimal damage from the remnants of Cyclone Ita, with heavy winds bringing down a few trees.

Although the island was not evacuated, Gladstone Area Promotion and Development Ltd reported that Delaware North Company cancelled its launch to Heron Island on Sunday.

Visitors to the island were given the option to head back to the mainland, which many chose to do.
