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.

FloodCheck online map

The FloodCheck interactive map is managed by the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy and gives access to a wide range of flood information and data developed as part of the Queensland Flood Mapping program.

The FloodCheck online map lets you:

  • view the likely extent of floodplains and historic floodlines
  • access flood information, maps, reports, basin and town flood studies and data, including the Queensland floodplain assessment overlay
  • search by address, lot/plan, town, local government areas, drainage basins and gauges
  • view inundation areas derived from flood studies related to gauge heights, modelled events and historical flood events
  • view flood and cyclone imagery where available and flood animation videos.
