Northern Grampians Shire has a long history of flooding including a significant flood event most recently in January 2011. This impacted the areas of Glenorchy and Halls Gap and vast extents of rural areas resulting in extensive damage through Navarre, Crowlands, Joel Joel, Greens Creek and Campbell’s Bridge.

The lead time to respond to a flood event may be limited. All households and businesses at risk of flooding should develop an emergency plan and beware of their flood risk. Households and businesses should refer to their Local Flood Guide or Municipal Flood Emergency Plan for more information.
