Beach signs, Cairns area.

Beach signs which are on every public beach in the Tropics.  These signs are on the beaches in the Cairns area.  The photos can be made larger if you can't see them correctly - just click!






The above walking path along a beach.


The usual, swim between the flags.


Always good to see palm trees growing in the sand.

  2. Attractive place but wild life does not sound appealing to me.

    1. Not a pleasant thing, we invade their living area, well some of us do..

  3. Crocodiles and ameebas .. huii. They are those animals which we cannot see here. The greatest danger we have is to strike the toe to stone or a piece of glass .. heh.

    1. Way too chilly up where you live..but do you swim in your summer time, I wonder!

    2. Heh.. of course we swim in summer. We have lots of lakes around Finland (thousands..) and on the sea too. And some people swim during the winter on a hole on the ice.

  4. What amazes me at times is how often people see the signs and still take no notice and act like they were not forewarned when something goes wrong

    1. Strange about that, have seen it so many times with little boats in the river, big sign re crocs and men in water - it't a wonder they live, the men I mean.

  5. I think I'd go have a beer someplace else if I saw the crocodile sign! Lovely beach!

    1. That would be a good idea Bill, you could just sit and watch!

  6. To the beach, which I usually go the summers, there is no problem of jellyfish and much less crocodile, so, you can bathe with all confidence.

  7. It's a gorgeous looking beach. I don't think I'd be swimming in it though!

  8. Sometimes I wonder why Councils and Surf Clubs bother to put up safety signs.
    Some people just refuse to read or worse to believe.
    Tourists are by far the worst.
    Great photos as always and report. Well done.... your FNQ promotion is fantastic.

  10. Remarkable photos of an amazing place. (even with the warning sign)

  11. Even salt water crocodiles don't spend much time in the sea, but would I want to take the chance? No, and nor would I trust that the lifeguards can spot any in the water, let alone the stingers.

    1. Never take a chance in Croc areas as you just never know, can't see them but they are there lurking about...wouldn't get me in the sea or a river/creek either. How about all those jelly fish washed ashore recently.

  12. what great photos. in adelaide we have jelly fish and sharks to worry about. jelly fish are not usually fatal. the beaches up that way are just beautiful. when i was in cairns they had netted areas to swim in that were supposedly to keep out the crocs and i think the stingers, although i don't know how. the waves were crashing over the top of the net. oh dear. apparently panty hose are stinger proof but i wouldn't risk it. people were out there swimming. brave and/or foolish. not for me. hope all is well Margaret

    1. Interesting regarding pantyhose. Many people don't like nets but we saw them up north, it's a help for swimmers.

  13. That's a pretty beach with the shady walking path next to it.

  14. Here accident occurs when people ignore the signs on beach as we hear in news about sinking .Though jelly fish is threat too but not most of the time .
    amazing photos friend!

  16. Wow that's a whole lot of cautionary notes - all merited I am sure. I certainly wouldn't be too anxious to swim with the crocs!
