Donny4508 :

We'll be staying there the first week of Novermber. Dunk is pretty close to the mainland. Wondered if anyone knows what the situation is exactly.

K Bear :
"I haven't been to Dunk Island (although would love to visit soon) I live in Cairns. Don't worry about stingers....it will be very early on in the season for them. I've been out on Green Island many times, and if there are major stingers in the water that day, they tell you. Always look at the lifeguards Noticeboard/blackboard before jumping into the water - and remember if there are flags to swim in between (as there is on Green Island) stick to that rule. Bottom line is people swim everyday out and around the great barrier reef, and all islands etc.... we are lucky to hear about 2-3 stings are year ... not often. Enjoy your trip !"
Sparky5115 :
"The only stinger you need to worry about in far north Queensland is the Box Jellyfish which proves fatal. They suggest wearing pantyhose in the water in those areas to help prevent stings. If you research the Box Jellyfish, you will find out what time of year they are around. If you are worried about stingrays (aka Steve Irwin), don't be."

"they like to hush it up but i was stung at dunk island. not too bad - had to take an anti histamine and had large welt across my legs for a few days. i wouldn't swim anywhere north of hervey bay unless it was in an enclosure. wear a stinger body suit."

A thrilling close encounter with a great white shark has been photographed by divers off the Kapiti coast.The four-metre shark appeared as a shadow in the water as Te Horo builder Gary Porter prepared to take his third dive off the southern tip of Kapiti Island on Saturday afternoon.
