A small crocodile has been spotted inside the Mackay Marina. 

Mackay Marina Village posted a warning on its Facebook page saying "heads up Marina Patrons and anyone using the beach inside the marina".

"Small Crocodile spotted today 11/1/19 swimming close to beach area."

The Mackay Marina Village also said that Wildlife Rangers had been called and were aware of the sighting.

It comes after a large turtle was spotted roaming the streets in Mackay. 

He was photographed wandering along a street about 400 metres from Harbour Beach.

The turtle has since been assisted back to the sand where he will hopefully find his way home.
