Disaster Recovery Projects

After heavy rainfall and major flooding in February 2019, numerous Council assets such as roads and culvert drains were damaged. This level of severe wet weather is considered a disaster event and Council has been successful in receiving funding under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) to repair these assets.

The DRFA is a joint Commonwealth/State Government program which provides financial assistance to help communities recover from eligible disasters.

View the map below to see all the DRFA projects underway in the Whitsunday region. A list of current and upcoming unsealed road repairs is also below underneath the map. This information is updated regularly.
