An outbreak of Plasmodium vivax malaria at a campsite in Northern Queensland has affected 10 people including three overseas visitors (one from Ireland, one from Germany, and one from Canada). The outbreak occurred during the first two weeks of October 2002 in tourists staying at the Noah Beach campsite, which is a campsite in Daintree National Park, Cape Tribulation. Park rangers have used details from self-registration forms at the campsite to compile a list of visitors to Noah Beach during the period of malaria transmission. Where contact details were available, the Tropical Public Health Unit in Queensland contacted individuals to inform them of the occurrence of malaria and offer advice. Visitors to the park have included travellers from the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Israel, the Netherlands, and Sweden (Dianne Brookes ([email protected]), Tropical Public Health Unit, Queensland, personal communication, 12 November 2002).
