Fighting to keep Bundaberg flood safe since 2018

Join Us & Help Us Fight for What's Right!

The Problem

During the 2013 Bundaberg floods, over 5000 North Bundaberg residents were evacuated from their homes in Australia’s largest military evacuation to date. After several years and millions of dollars worth of feasibility studies, North Bundaberg’s most vulnerable residents face the same level of flood risks as they did in 2013.

The “Solution”

The proposed $82 million East Bundaberg Levee offers limited protection for areas such as East Bundaberg and the Bundaberg CBD. Worse yet, it offers NO protection for residents of North Bundaberg or other flood-affected areas.

How to Get Involved

The Bundaberg Flood Protection Group was formed to ensure that flood protection measures are designed to save lives first while also protecting as many properties as possible from future flood events. We believe that flood protection should be focused on those areas most at risk.

Our petition calls for a review of other existing flood mitigation proposals to find real solutions for our region, especially the thousands of residents who need it most.
