Surf Lifesaving Qld has reported finding a large adult box jellyfish during routine drags at Palm Cove today. This is a good reminder that it is still stinger season and there is still risk when swimming in the ocean. Please swim inside stinger nets where provided and wear protective clothing.

Sound and lighting will be used from early tomorrow morning to deter flying foxes from roosting in trees next to the Esplanade Lagoon. This will allow us to safely clean and trim the trees and their surrounds and will hopefully prevent flying foxes from making a permanent home there. http://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/council/news-publications/media-releases/releases/flying-fox-deterrent

Cr Linda Cooper and Kamerunga residents have welcomed the completion of an off-road path along Stoney Creek Road. Residents have campaigned for this path for a decade but steep terrain made the project difficult. The end result = an engineering feat that includes cantilevering the path above the cliff-like embankment. http://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/council/news-publications/media-releases/releases/stoney-creek-path
