 detectives are preparing to address media in relation to the discovery of human remains on the banks of a Park Avenue creek on Saturday morning. 

A press conference will be held at the Rockhampton Police Station within the next hour with detectives expected to discuss the identification of the remains. 

EARLIER: THE first residents of Macalister St, at Park Avenue, knew of human remains found on the banks of a nearby creek on Saturday was when police knocked on their door.

Neighbours say the usually quiet North Rockhampton street came alive on Saturday afternoon when police, detectives and forensic teams swarmed on to a residential backyard that bordered a creek inlet off the Fitzroy River.

Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Moon said forensic services were engaged with the investigation but was unable to clarify whether or not the remains were bones as reported by media or the circumstances in which they were found.

He said police were notified about 9am on Saturday and remained on scene until early evening.

"It's early days where human remains have been located," he said.

"At this point we are conducting our investigations as if anything is suspicious until otherwise proven.

"We have our forensic services engaged in our investigation, they're currently conducting examinations of the scene at which time we will receive further advice from them."

One neighbour said she saw police leaving the property with bags of evidence.

"I saw the police and the SES, I saw some evidence bags go, not very large but there was a coroner's van here," she said.

"They were going down to the creek. You've got to remember it's all tidal here and that creek comes and gets flooded from (further upstream).

"We've all been here forever, we're all pretty stable, I've been here for a long, long time.

"I don't think it's got anything to do with anybody around here.

"They would have left by 6.30pm or something like that and there has been nothing since, just a lot of people driving by trying to see things. There has been more traffic than what there normally is, they're just coming to have a look, there is a bit of increased activity."

Another resident said he was "very much" surprised by the discovery.

"I wouldn't dream for something like that to happen here," he said. "It's normally very quiet, it very much surprises me."

Investigations are continuing.
