Tropical cyclone Tasha has left heavy rain and flooding in its wake over a large part of northern Queensland.

The Bureau of Meteorology says the cyclone, which made landfall on Saturday, is over, but has left behind a broad area of rain.

Flooding is expected near Ingham, when the Herbert River peaks.

The Weather Bureau says the heaviest rainfall is moving into Central Queensland.
