A MASSIVE oil clean-up is underway to limit the damage on southeast Queensland beaches after toxic fuel and fertiliser spilled from a cargo ship.
A lifesaver said oil slicks have been found as high up the coast as Marcoola and Yaroomba beaches on the Sunshine Coast.
Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) is conducting aerial and land-based inspections of beaches after 31 containers carrying 620 tonnes of ammonium nitrate toppled from a ship into the sea near Moreton Island yesterday morning.
Up to 30 tonnes of oil also leaked from the 180-metre Pacific Adventurer when it was damaged by a falling container, which has created a slick.
