CROCODILE SIGHTINGS AGAIN IN THE FRASER COAST,ELI CREEK POINT VERNON HERVEY BAY

WILD CROCODILES IN THE FRASER COAST @ ELI  CREEK AREA

CROCODILES have reportedly been sighted by a kayaker in Eli Creek leading to signs being erected at Point Vernon warning people against swimming in the area and to keep well away from the water’s edge.

Fraser Coast councillor Trevor McDonald said a kayaker reported spotting a croc on a bank in Eli Creek and then when he was paddling out of the creek he saw another in front of him in the water.

Department of Environment and Heritage Protection manager wildlife operations Mike Devery said the report was received on Friday.

He said rangers had conducted land and vessel based surveys of the area, however the crocodiles reported were not seen.

Rangers had also erected recent sighting signs and would conduct a further survey of the area during the week, he said.

Cr McDonald said the rangers would perform a night search at high tide and the process of searching for evidence would last for seven days.

He said if no sign of crocodiles was found, the signs would be removed.

Point Vernon resident Kerri Wouters said she usually swam in the area two to three times a week with her husband and six-year-old son but was “not game to go in the water at the moment”.

She said it was not an overly popular swimming area but more of a secluded spot.

“We sometimes take the kayak out ourselves,” Ms Wouters said.

“We saw the first croc signs put up on Friday.”

She said she would probably still walk along the foreshore but “it sort of makes you a bit cautious”.

Crocodile sightings can be reported to EHP at any time on 1300 130 372.
