For property level flood mapping and data we strongly recommend you contact the relevant local council.

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 Queensland application

The Floodcheck interactive map is managed by the Department of Resources, and gives access to flood mapping products and data developed to improve our understanding of flood behaviour on a regional scale.

Flood study and mapping reference guides

The Queensland Government, via the Department of Resources, has produced a flood mapping implementation kit to assist local councils and disaster management groups to use flood mapping products to improve their disaster management and land use planning, and a guide for flood studies and mapping in Queensland to promote a consistent approach to flood studies and mapping throughout the state.
