Dickson: Be dingo safe these holidays

NATIONAL Parks Minister Steve Dickson is calling on Fraser Island visitors and residents to be "dingo safe" during the summer holidays.

He said thousands of campers visited the tourist destination every summer, but warned people against getting too close to the wild animals.

"Fraser Island attracts thousands of visitors to its beautiful beaches and lakes, stunning sand cliffs and rainforests, but they need to be mindful of dingoes," Mr Dickson said.

"Be warned, they are wild animals, not domestic pets, and must be treated as such.

"Feeding dingoes is not only illegal, but also encourages the animals to seek food from other people, leading to problems later on. More information here.
