Thousands of jellyfish have washed up on a beach in Queensland in Australia.

The blue blubber jellyfish have completely covered the sand.

They have been described looking  like bubble wrap across the beach.

The blue blubber jellyfish is a common sight on the Australian east coast but is not normally seen in such big numbers.

Marine biologist, Dr Lisa-Ann Gershwin, said the unusual sight was probably caused by warmer water and an absence of predators. Wind and tide conditions may have also been factors.

According to locals the jellyfish had started to smell “pretty rank”.

  2. There is no way anyone could persuade me to go on that beach. But it would look pretty amazing!

  3. I think it would look quite cool but scary and it would be annoying and you probably wouldn’t be able to go on the beach.

  4. that would be cool seeing a jellyfish. But it would be scary to touch one it would probably sting you.
