Authorities are warning people not to panic but to prepare themselves and their properties for a weekend of wild weather.
The Bureau has also issued a Flood Watch from Gladstone to the New South Wales border. "Forecast rainfall totals are largely dependent on the cyclone track, and there still are a wide range of scenarios at this point".
"It's all a bit uncertain until Saturday when we should have a better idea of where it is heading but it is all hinging on how close the cyclone comes to the coasts", she said.
The longer the storm lingers, the more damage it is likely to cause as waves as high as six metres have been seen along the shore.
While it is unusual for a cyclone to track this far south, it is not unprecedented.
