The investigation is tasked with responding to the devastating flood event of 2022, preparing for recovery, investigating and reporting the causes.

The independent research is led by Professor Mary O’Kane AC and Michael Fuller APM.

“The flood research team is interested in hearing from individuals and communities, especially about the flood experience in the towns of Byron Bay and Mullumbimby and the surrounding area. Personal stories are in the Flood Survey Report. It’s a valuable reference, “said Professor Okane.

“Inquiry has received valuable contributions from the community and will continue to submit until June 24th,” says Fuller.

Inquiries report on:

  • Causes and factors that contribute to the frequency, intensity, timing, and location of floods.
  • Preparation and planning by government agencies and communities for floods in New South Wales.
  • Measures to respond to floods, especially to protect life, property and the environment.
  • Transition from incident response to recovery.
  • Recovery including housing, cleaning, financial support, community involvement, and long-term community reconstruction.

NSW Flood Inquiry has extended its public submission until June 24 to ensure that everyone affected by the flood has the opportunity to contribute to Inquiry.

Submission can be done online nsw.gov.au/floodinquiryBy email, or mail. Service NSW Centers and Mobile Service Centers are also equipped to help people submit. All submissions to your inquiry will be considered.
