Bluebottle jellyfish: Thousands of Queensland beachgoers stung
Bluebottle jellyfish stings can be painful
Vast numbers of bluebottle jellyfish have swarmed beaches in Queensland, Australia, stinging thousands of people and forcing the closure of swim spots.
Surf Life Saving Queensland said over 2,600 people received treatment at the weekend. Bluebottle stings are painful but typically not life-threatening.
Unusually strong winds pushed the jellyfish colonies close to shore.
