About Queensland flood mapping

The Queensland Government works with councils and the private sector to develop products and services to assist in mitigating, preparing, responding and recovering from flood events across the state.

Major event flood imagery and data from 1974, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017 is currently available and can be used for recovery activities and future planning.

Flood study and mapping reference guides

The Flood mapping implementation kit (PDF, 877KB) assists local councils and disaster management groups to use flood mapping products to improve their disaster management and land use planning.

The Guide for flood studies and mapping in Queensland (PDF, 2.54MB) promotes a consistent approach to flood studies and mapping throughout the state.
