Fitzroy Region – Understand Your Flood Risk

Fitzroy Regional Resilience Strategy

Learn about the Fitzroy Basin in Central Queensland and understand your flood risk. The Fitzroy Basin includes eleven catchments, with their creeks and rivers flowing into the Fitzroy River and its estuaries eventually flowing out to the Great Barrier Reef. The Queensland Government has partnered with six councils to deliver the Fitzroy Regional Resilience Strategy, which uses a collaborative catchment approach for best practice management of flood warning infrastructure. The purpose of the Strategy is to provide a consistent and coordinated approach to manage flood warning infrastructure throughout the region that will enhance community safety and resilience. The Strategy has been developed in consultation with Central Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils (CQROC); Banana Shire Council; Central Highlands Regional Council; Isaac Regional Council; Livingstone Shire Council; Rockhampton Regional Council; Woorabinda Aboriginal Shire Council; with input from supporting stakeholder agencies including the Bureau of Meteorology, Fitzroy Basin Association and SunWater.
