A Queensland Coastal Hazard Area map can also be downloaded by choosing a map from the map sheet index. These maps open as PDF documents and can be saved and/or printed. Map sheets are at a scale of 1:40,000 for urban areas and 1:70,000 for rural areas.

Queensland Coastal Hazard Areas map layers

The Queensland Coastal Hazard Areas map consists of two pages:

  • Page one displays areas considered vulnerable to coastal erosion or permanent tidal inundation and also displays the inland boundaries of the coastal management district.
  • Page two displays areas that have a 1% or greater risk of storm tide inundation in any one year including projected climate change impact to 2100 (a 0.8m increase in sea level). It shows two risk areas: high risk areas where inundation would be greater than 1m in depth, and a medium risk area where inundation will be less than 1m. The map also displays the coastal management district.

See the coastal hazard areas page for further details.
