Flood mapping

The Queensland Government provides flood mapping information to councils and the local community. This assists in mitigating, preparing, responding and recovering from flood disasters across the state.

The FloodCheck interactive map gives access to a wide range of flood information and data, which may be useful to the general community, business (e.g. insurance, property development), government agencies and the research community.
