Queensland's tallest flood marker was unveiled in Goodna on the first anniversary of the devastating floods of January 2011.

The flood marker, made from steel girders and resembling brightly coloured Lego blocks, is 10 metres high and identifies seven major floods in the suburb of Goodna over the past 119 years - 1890, 1893, 1898, 1931, 1955, 1974 and 2011. In 2011 the flood peaked at 16.4 metres above sea level in Goodna, just below the 1974 flood peak of 17 metres.
