But you do use the Australia intensity scale.

Even your official Bureau of Meteorology uses it.

And no article I researched regarding storm intensity in Queensland used the Saffir-Simpson scale, only the Australia scale.

So again, Queensland has never even been hit by a Saffir-Simpson Cat 5 storm.

Let me reiterate. Not all outlets in Australia use the Australian intensity scale. - And in instances when they don't, they make mention of it.
I am also not in Queensland, this is an entire continent you know.

Are you sure there has never been a Category 5 saffir-equivalent Cyclone in Australia? ;)

Cyclone Mahina.

260km/h at 1 minute sustained resolution.

I also suggest you read this, it compares the scales.

I thought you were in Queensland based off the following statement:

With that in mind... Queensland gets hit by several Cyclones (Aka. Hurricanes) a year, we manage to avoid a ton of death and destruction and hysteria, even with Category 5 storms.

And I missed Cyclone Mahina because the bom.gov.au site only went back 100 years.
