This is set to be a game changer for Far North Queensland and the rest of the world. 

New safety alert technology will be trialed at Green Island which will send messages in seven different languages to those swimming between the red and yellow flags. 

It'll become the first region in the world to trial the technology thanks to funding by the Department of Innovation and Tourism Industry Development. 

The aim is to breakdown the communication barriers between lifesavers and international tourists by encouraging beachgoers to swim between the flags.
