Stinger nets around Townsville will be removed this week as the weather becomes cooler and the stinger season finishes.

Uninet Enclosure Systems will be removing the Townsville and Magnetic Island nets this week.

Community Health and Environment Committee Chair Cr Ann-Maree Greaney said the nets play an important role in keeping swimmers safe during the warmer months.

“The climate in Townsville in summer is ideal for swimming at the beach and these nets allow locals and tourists to cool off safely throughout the stinger season,” Cr Greaney said.

“We’ve had some cooler weather recently so the nets can be removed and maintenance carried out before they need to go back in later in the year.

“The nets and lifeguards have done a great job keeping swimmers safe and Council does encourage beach goers to stay safe when in the water.”

Nets at Pallarenda and Balgal Beach have already been pulled in, today it'll be The Strand, before Maggie Island nets are seen to on Wednesday.
