had a catastrophic effect on many Queensland communities, with the most severe impacts
centred on Rockhampton, Biloela and Yeppoon.

Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements in the local government areas of Rockhampton,
North Burnett and Gympie Regional Councils and Livingstone and Banana Shire Councils.

strategic guidance for the coordination and management of recovery and reconstruction efforts
and activities undertaken after the event by the Queensland government, local governments,
industry and other stakeholders. The Recovery Plan will help to ensure that impacted
communities recover as quickly as possible.
