Queensland wet season information

The wet season, commonly referred to as 'The Wet', is an annual weather event occurring generally between the months of November and April. The Wet affects tropical areas in central and north Queensland. During this season, these regions can experience heavy rainfall, sometimes causing flooding and/or land slips, which can isolate communities, industries and travellers. As a result of this flooding, roads can be affected by being cut off or washed away. Roads that have been flooded must be carefully managed. To do this, road closures, load restrictions and traffic management may be implemented to protect the road asset and balance access for communities and industries. Main Roads provides regular updates to RACQ about road conditions on the network in Queensland.

This information is available via the RACQ website or by phoning 1300 130 595.
