Abstract Disasters are predictable, not in time or place, but in their inevitability. In the South Pacific region there is an ever-present threat of cyclones, floods, fires, earthquakes and volcanic activity. Australian health teams, both defence force and civilian, have played major roles in the Brisbane floods (1974), Cyclone Tracey (Darwin, 1975), the Ash Wednesday bushfires (1983), the Newcastle earthquake (1989), and the Katherine floods (1997), to name but a few.
