Burnett Catchment Flood Resilience Strategy

The Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA), local governments and state agencies are working together on a long-term plan to manage the impact of future floods and enhance community safety and resilience in the Burnett River Catchment.

The Burnett Catchment Flood Resilience Strategy was successfully completed in May 2018 to provide a consistent and coordinated approach to managing flood risk across the four local councils located within the catchment.

Partner councils include Bundaberg Regional Council, Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council, North Burnett Regional Council, and South Burnett Regional Council, and implementation of the strategy is being overseen by the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Councils.
