A mysterious big splash in a Queensland river has sparked wild rumours of the city’s very own Loch Ness monster.

There is now even speculation the river, which flows through the heart of Brisbane, could have its very own monster lurking beneath its depths.

The woman claims she was cycling along a bikeway when she noticed the splash around 6.45pm on Monday, November 19, the Brisbane Times reported.
She stood on the bridge for a further 10 minutes but did not spot any more activity in the water.
Water police and Sandgate Volunteer Marine Rescue vessels, along with the Rescue 500 helicopter spent the night searching the waters.
Despite this, the possible cause of the disturbance remains unknown.
Authorities appealed to anyone in the area at the time of the incident to come forward.
They have also asked that any dashcam or phone footage from anyone who was close to the Go Between Bridge at the time be handed in.
