Department of Transport and Main Roads

The department is aware of reports of oil patties being washed ashore on coastlines around Lucinda and we’re responding with other government agencies.
Our shoreline clean-up crews are making good progress at several sites clearing up the material and we’re investigating the cause.
Meanwhile please avoid affected beaches and use soap and water to clean up if you do come in contact with oil patties.
If you see oiled wildlife don’t attempt a rescue but call 1300 130 372.
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Officers are trained and waiting to respond.
If you have other information or concerns you can also phone the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority on 0427 969 384.

Please note: Services online, including licensing and registration services, will be unavailable from 10pm Monday 3 August to 1am Tuesday 4 August.
