Flooding in Brisbane

Brisbane sits on a flood plain which means flooding is possible. Brisbane City Council works to manage and reduce the risks of flooding to ensure our city remains safe and liveable. Find information on the likelihood and sources of flooding for your property and local area with our Flood Awareness Maps.  Read about Council's flood plans and find out how to protect your home and business from flooding.
