The Fitzroy River at Rockhampton has surged to 6.75m, just 25cm below the minor flood level.

The river will likely exceed the major flood level of 8.5m by tomorrow afternoon before reaching its peak on Wednesday.

BoM hydrologists believe it will stay at major flood level for about five days.

This list includes every street where houses are flooded, including in the backyard. 

The list, which is based on current Rockhampton Regional flood maps, may also not include homes protected by the new flood barriers.

On Jan. 7, 2011, the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) instrument on NASA's Terra spacecraft captured this image of the inundated city of Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. Torrential rains in northeastern Australia caused the Fitzroy River to overflow its banks and flood much of the city and surrounding agricultural lands. Both the airport and major highways are underwater, isolating the city. In this natural color rendition, muddy water is brown, and shallow, clearer water is gray. Vegetation is depicted in various shades of green, and buildings and streets are white. The image is located at 23.3 degrees south latitude, 150.5 degrees east longitude. The image covers an area of 22 by 28.1 kilometers (13.6 by 17.4 miles).
