Travel advisory – crocodiles and weather
The travel advice on http://www.smarttraveller.gov.au states that
“Fresh and salt water crocodiles and sharks are common in Solomon Islands’ waters, and can be present on occasions in areas close to Honiara including the popular Bonegi Beach. Local advice should be sought before entering unfamiliar waters.”
We understand that large crocodiles have recently been sighted near Bonegi Beach. Options for their destruction are being investigated, but we encourage Australians to be particularly mindful of this section of the travel advice at this time.
