Be aware of box jellyfish and stingers in northern parts of Australia in summer months

During the summer months from October to May along the Northern Australian coastline certain varieties of jellyfish like the box jellyfish are present in the coastal waters and can cause very serious reactions if you are stung. It is advised that between these months you swim in the protected netted swimming areas or avoid swimming in the sea.

If bitten by a box jellyfish vinegar should be applied to the sting and seek medical attention immediately.
