Snake Awareness

With the recent hot weather, snakes are on the move in search of food, water and warmth. If you encounter a snake, do not panic. Back away to a safe distance and allow the snake to move away, they often want to escape when disturbed. All snakes are protected under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and it is an offence to kill, injure or take snakes from the wild. For additional information, the Queensland Government have developed a website full of useful information:
