Ten kilograms of white powder, believed to be cocaine, washed up on a beach in North Queensland

Beachgoers in Ramsay Bay on Hinchinbrook Island contacted police on Sunday after discovering 10 kilogram packages on the shore at high tide

Investigators are searching the area and urging the public to provide information, fearing that the contents of the packages “could become a health risk” if mismanaged

Detective Graham Camp’s acting senior sergeant has said anyone who finds other packages should not open them, but contact the police

“Anyone who is at sea or on the coastline near these locations and has seen anything suspicious in the water or any other suspicious activity is urged to contact the police,” he said.

Other packages may run aground along the coast due to tidal currents and ocean currents
