Marine stingers and tropical jellyfish, the invisible danger at Airlie Beach and throughout Whitsunday waters. Poisonous tendrils are seeking your flesh! Stay out of the water after the first tourist of the season is stung (that would be Friday 19 December 2008, or Thursday 2 December 2010).
Deaths from marine stingers are rare. I know of only two deaths from Irukandji marine stingers, both in 2002.
Where the Rainforest meets the Sea, until the developers arrived, and the golden sand comes in dump trucks.
