Health and Safety

In an emergency, dial 000 to reach an ambulance, the police, or the fire department.

Outdoors, wear a hat and sunscreen whatever the season. Water can be rough; resist anything more than getting your ankles wet without a lifeguard present and always swim between the red-and-yellow flags.

Medical and emergency facilities are basic offshore on the Moreton Bay islands, Fraser Island, and the Mackay-Capricorn Islands. All tour operators recommended here have contingency plans for major medical situations.
