Highest tides of the year


A severe weather warning has been issued for Queensland's southeast coast, with the highest tides of the year expected in the region.

Residents have been warned of possible beach erosion and inundation of the lowest lying areas from Fraser Island south to the Gold Coast.

The highest water levels are expected on the late morning high tide today and tomorrow.

Locations that could be affected include the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, and eastern coasts of the Moreton Bay Islands and Fraser Island.

The bureau also says a wind warning is current for coastal waters from Gladstone to Double Island Point, including Hervey Bay.
