The Gold Coast is subject to flood risks and past flood events have caused moderate to extensive damage to private property, community buildings, bridges and roads.
Flooding is generally understood as the inundation of land from rivers breaking their banks usually as a result of rainfall. Elevated sea levels and extreme storm tides in response to cyclonic weather events can also result in land being inundated by water.
Through detailed flood modelling, mapping, planning, mitigation and managing the stormwater network, the City of Gold Coast is committed to protecting the Gold Coast's built and natural environment against flooding.
