  • Cabonne Community Centre, Molong – Tuesday 7 May
  • Eugowra Bowling Club, Eugowra – Wednesday 8 May
  • Richmond Club, Richmond – Thursday 9 May
  • Venue tbc, Parramatta – Friday 10 May

Committee Chair Daniel Mulino MP said the inquiry had heard from regulators, insurance companies and consumer advocacy and legal rights groups. “Now we want to hear firsthand from the locals in some of the worst-hit regions.”

The Committee has recently held hearings in south-east Queensland, Lismore NSW, Maribyrnong (western Melbourne) and regional Victoria.

The Committee will next travel to Molong and Eugowra in central-west NSW, which were devastated by unprecedented flash flooding in November 2022. The Committee will also hear evidence in Richmond from communities along the Hawkesbury-Nepean River, which was hit by back-to-back flood events in February 2020, March 2021, March, April and July 2022 – the worst flood since 1978 – October 2022, and again in April this year. The Committee will then take evidence in Parramatta in western Sydney.
