Safety warning: fast flowing water in creeks along Cardwell Forest Drive

This alert applies to the following parks:

Recent heavy rainfall and further forecasted rainfall is causing creeks in the area to rise significantly.

When near creeks (on foot or in vehicles) always be aware of:

  • strong water currents (even when surface water looks calm)
  • unpredictable water conditions
  • slippery rocks
  • submerged objects

Many people have died, others have been seriously injured entering creeks and rivers in far north Queensland.

To stay safe do not enter the water.
