Red-bellied black snake

All native snakes are protected species.

If you do come across a snake, keep children and pets well clear and do not try to touch it. Almost all snake bites occur when people try to handle, kill or harm a snake.

Licensed snake removal services can help catch the snake and remove it. If possible, watch where the snake goes so the snake catcher can find it.

To find out more about snakes and what to do if you spot one, visit the Department of Environment, Water & Natural Resources website which has a wealth of information.

Council is not responsible for removing snakes. However, if you do see one on Council property please let us know.
