HAPPY patrons at Tannum Sands Beach had a visit from a predator on Sunday morning.

A two-and-a-half-metre tiger shark washed up on Second Beach.

Onlookers took photos and watched on in awe.

The shark was caught on a special drumline and floated into shore.

The Tannum Sands Lifeguards were shortly notified and removed the shark from the water's edge.

Meanwhile, at the Tannum Sands Millennium Esplanade many families and kids gathered for a day out, and the nippers went about their usual business.

Tannum Sands Surf lifesavers patrol the Millennium Esplanade area every weekend from 9am to 5pm.
