Beaches open for busi­ness

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

FOUR Mile Beach is now of­fi­cially open for the sea­son, with the re­moval of the stinger nets.

The beach of­fi­cially re-opened yes­ter­day in time for the start of the 2012 Car­ni­vale pe­riod.

Life­guard Lau­rie Green said the rough con­di­tions have swept stingers out of the wa­ters and no there have been no re­cent re­ports of stingers in the area.

“We would like to re­mind peo­ple to swim be­tween the red and yel­low flags, for their own safety,” he said.

“If any­one sus­pects they have seen a jel­ly­fish or stinger please re­port it and if peo­ple have any ques­tions they can feel free to ask the life­guard on duty.”
