The 2013 floods had a massive and lasting impact on the Bundaberg community. Any long-time resident of the city will no doubt have vivid memories of the natural disaster that shocked the region on Australia Day of that year, and the aftermath residents had to deal with in the following weeks and months.
On the 10th anniversary of the Australia Day flood, IMPACT Community Services staff have recounted their memories of the unforgettable event, sharing the highs and lows, and how the community came together to support one another through tough times for all.
IMPACT Managing Director Tanya O’Shea said: “The 2013 Australia Day flood will be etched in my memory for the rest of my life.”
