Crocodile sighting causes closure of Queensland’s Four Mile Beach

Crocodile sighting causes closure of Queensland’s Four Mile Beach
February 3, 2020

Lifeguards at Queensland’s Four Mile Beach, Port Douglas, closed the beach on 30th January due to a crocodile sighting, believed to be around three metres in length.

Following the closure, lifeguards monitored the crocodile using the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Drone.

Surf Life Saving Queensland are using the incident as a timely reminder for the public to always swim at patrolled locations, between the red and yellow flags, where lifeguards are on duty to watch over beachgoers and monitor the water for marine creatures.

Surf Life Saving Australia advises “if a beach has been closed due to a croc sighting, do not enter the water, stay clear of the water’s edge, and always follow the advice of lifeguards and lifesavers.”

Lifeguards continue to monitor the coastline for further marine creatures over the coming days.
