Snake removal program trial

Snake removal program trial extended.

Based on the demand from within the community for a snake removal service, the trial providing free snake removal to local residents has been extended until August 2017.

Requests for a snake catcher by property owners will only be responded to if the snake is clearly visible and the property owner provides authorisation to remove the snake.

For more information, or to report a snake, call us on 9747 7200.


Snakes, such as Brown, Tiger and Red-bellied Black Snakes, become active in Spring through to Autumn, and will often seek warm places such as concreted surfaces and dry, open areas to sunbake.  This can include areas close to houses, parks and reserves.
