Sick of wanting to find out information on the history of cyclones that have hit Australia, but end up getting caught up in technical jargon? At the Australian Cyclones website, we stick to the basic facts without telling you in depth meteorological information. We provide basic information such as the category, wind speeds, eye diameter, areas affected however we miss out all the technical jargon such as lines of latitude and longitude, air pressure etc.

For free, we provide one of the internet's largest lists of cyclones that have hit Australia.


Cyclones are best described as a weather phenomenon. They are a circular fluid motion which rotates with the earth. Tropical cyclones are the most common form of cyclones in Australia, as they are formed by cold low pressure systems in tropical conditions during the monsoonal season. Along with sustained destructive winds that vary from 63km/h+ (gusts 91km/h +), cyclones also pose other threats such as severe thunderstorms and flash flooding.

At this website, you can find the history behind some of Australia's most destructive cyclones.
