In the last week of February through to the first week of March 2010 Queensland, Central Australia and Northern New South Wales experienced unprecedented rainfall and serious flooding in several regions. Queensland recorded highest state wide average rainfall on 2 March, with 31.74 mm, exceeding the previous record of 31.49 mm established on 21 May 1981. As a result the heavy deluge brought about widespread flooding to numerous rivers including Paroo, Moonie, Balonne, Dawson, Theodore, Moura, Maranoa, Warrego, Diamantina, Bulloo, Condamine, Weir, Mary, Burnett, and Comet.

This had devastating impact on infrastructure including roads, railways and bridges, as well as agriculture and horticulture industries including farms, crops and live stock. The Insurance Council of Australia Estimated that the February/March floods of 2010 cost approximately $46.7m. Record flood heights were recorded in a number of towns in the affected areas including on the Paroo River at Eulo, in Bradley's Gully at Charleville, on Wallam Creek at Bollon, on Bungil Creek at Roma, on the Moonie River at Nindigully and Thallon and on the Balonne River at St. George, Surat, Dirranbandi and Hebel. The Dawson River at Theodore and Moura reached its highest levels since 1956, with the Maranoa River at Mitchell and the Warrego River at Cunnamulla both reaching their highest levels since 1990.
