Flood history

The Gold Coast is subject to existing, future and residual flood risks and has experienced more than 20 floods since 1958. Past flood events caused moderate to extensive damage to private property, community buildings, bridges and roads.

Since the 1970s, the City of Gold Coast has been monitoring and mapping flood extent to support community resilience to flood risk.
