The Beaches and Oceans of Tropical Queensland are an important part of the natural attractions of the region. During the warmer months Marine Stingers may be present in tropical waters, but by taking a few simple precautions you can minimise risk associated with the two types of potentially dangerous jellyfish (marine stingers). Swim at patrolled beaches and between the red and yellow flags. Look for, and observe, warning signs. Where provided, swim in stinger resistant enclosures, wear protective clothing and do not swim when beaches are closed.
