This study analyzed tsunami inundation zones and their implications regarding disaster mitigation in the city. This study employed quantitative approach using Geographical Information System (GIS) to map tsunami disaster prone areas. Cost Distance was used to model tsunami disaster; spatial analyst and network analyst were used to analyze the level of danger, vulnerability, and risk of tsunami, and also the establishment of evacuation routes. Analysis indicated the followings: (1) The City of Palu has large potential for tsunami inundation, (2) tsunami danger area comprises 9,63% of total city area, (3) tsunami vulnerable area 9,83% of total city area, (4) tsunami risk area 3,83% of total city area, and (5) there are 50 shelters acting as evacuation points and 108 evacuation routes in around the city.
