2019 Queensland Bushfires

The 2019 bushfire season was catastrophic, with more than 7 million hectares burnt across the state.

In collaboration with the State Recovery Coordinator, state agencies and local councils, QRA has developed the Queensland Bushfires State Recovery Plan 2019-2022 to guide recovery of the community impacted by the bushfires that caused widespread damage across parts of Queensland from September through to December 2019. 

It focuses on locally-led initiatives that support the rebuilding of health and emotional wellbeing of those impacted by the disaster, as well as infrastructure, local economies and the environment.

The Australian and Queensland Governments also jointly funded a $20 million package under Category C of the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) to further support Queensland communities in their recovery from the bushfires.
