Airle Beach Mosquitoes?

Is there much danger from Mosquitoes in Airlie Beach? Also, has anyone stayed at the Seaview backpackers?

Thanks.

NO Mosquitoes only bite/use sprays if concerned...other things to worry about like crocodiles/sharks/spiders....but you wont see any of these either..unless you decide to swim in billabong or saltwater rivers.

Sorry know nothing about seaview maybe post to Qld Forum.

Yobbie at certian times there are outbreaks of Ross River Feverwhich are mosquito born..it really dpends on the time of year you are visiting..the risk is the same as getting measles so not worht panicking about..

the little critters itch so use a tropical strenght repellent..woudl i think twice about a visit because of Mossies...no way..

Dengue fever is more likely to be a probelm in Cairns but then again so is being run over by a bus!

Thanks for replying. Normally I would agree with u but I have hepatitis so cannot afford to get another virus.

Outbreak levels are very low....

I haven't heard of any Ross River for quite while..

Perhaps Dept of health can help ypu with actual figures and risk..
