Floodplains are areas that adjoin creeks, rivers or coastlines and include the footprint of all adjoining land that could experience inundation during a flood. Do the following flood checks to understand more about flooding in your area.
Suburb flood maps
Council has compiled maps showing areas of potential flood inundation for each suburb within the region.
Flood explorer interactive mapping tool
Council has developed an interactive mapping tool that provides an easy way to learn about flooding in your area. The tool allows you to easily see the impact of different levels and types of flood events on your property. Please note: Flood Explorer is best suited for use well before an actual flooding event and may not be available during an event.
Flood check property report
You can obtain a report that describes flooding at your property. Please note: Flood Check Property Report is best suited for use well before an actual flooding event and may not be available during an event.
