Many visitors come to Queensland for the Great Barrier Reef, snorkelling or scuba diving. Unfortunately in summer, our hot, wet, time, we have marine stingers, deadly jellyfish which could be present in coastal waters.

How far north you travel in Queensland will affect the dates and duration of stinger season, the further north and the warmer the weather, the longer stinger season will last. It will start earlier and end later.

These marine stingers are potentially deadly and include box jelliyfish and Irudkanje.
