Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. If caught early, 95% of skin cancers are treatable.

It is best to stay out of the midday sun (from mid-morning to late afternoon) whenever you can.
Protect yourself from UV radiation. Reflected UV radiation can go through light clothing, windshields, windows and clouds.
Wear long sleeves and long pants of tightly woven fabrics, a wide brimmed hat, and sunglasses that absorb UV.
Do no use sunlamps and tanning booths
