Important information

These maps have been developed to help communicate the risks of sea level rise. The maps are not provided as professional advice, and should not be relied upon for site-specific decision-making or for making financial or any other commitments.

While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy and correctness of materials presented, the Australian Government makes no expressed or implied warranties (including warranties of merchantability and fitness) with respect to the accuracy, completeness, character, function, or capabilities of the maps. Appropriate use and conclusions drawn from the maps are the responsibility of the user.

What do these maps show?

These maps show low-lying areas that are potentially vulnerable to flooding from a combination of sea level rise and a very high tide for three sea level rise scenarios.

Are more detailed studies required?

The maps are not a substitute for more detailed studies. There are local factors such as whether the coast is soft and vulnerable to erosion, existing protective structures such as sea walls, and catchment flooding risks from heavy rainfall events, which also need to be taken into account in decision-making.
