According to an article from the Sydney Morning Herald today, Sydney suburbs facing significant danger of inundation, even with limited rises are:
 Caringbah
 Kurnell
 Cromer
 and Manly Vale.

Significant parts of Newcastle and the central coast are also potentially in harm's way.

Flooding could occur along the Parramatta River, threatening homes and infrastructure around Homebush Bay, Newington and Silverwater.

Along the Cooks River, Arncliffe and Marrickville could suffer, with the threat of significant inundation at Sydney Airport.

Areas that are already affected: Lake Macquarie, Gosford Wyong, Wollongong, Shoalhaven and Rockdale.
