Higher than predicted tides expected

Higher than predicted high tides may be experienced in foreshore (low-lying areas near the coast) and riverside locations from Friday 21 June to Wednesday 26 June 2024. 

The Queensland Tide tables provided by the Bureau of Meteorology can be found at http://www.bom.gov.au/oceanography/projects/ntc/qld_tide_tables.shtml

Please note that due to likely change to the meteorological conditions, a tidal anomaly may cause these tide peaks to be higher than predicted.

These high tides are expected to be similar to the high tides experienced in mid-January 2024.

Minor localised flooding may be experienced in bayside, riverside and low-lying parts of nearby suburbs. Areas connected to foreshore, and tide-affected areas of the river, creeks and other waterways may also be affected. 

Residents in areas prone to localised flooding due to high tides are advised to avoid parking their cars on the street during these times.

If required, sandbags are available for collection from the following locations:

  • Darra - 38 Shamrock Road, Darra
  • Morningside - 9 Redfern Street, Morningside
  • Newmarket - 66 Wilston Road (in carpark off Erneton Street), Newmarket
  • Zillmere - 33 Jennings Street, Zillmere
  • Lota - Herbert Street, Lota.
