'Big splash' in Brisbane River remains a mystery

Police have been unable to get to the bottom of what caused the "big splash" in the Brisbane River last month.

The mysterious splash was reported to police by a passer-by on the Bicentennial Bikeway on November 19.

Police scoured the water through the night – but no clues emerged.

Police said a woman was cycling along the bikeway when she saw the splash beneath the Milton end of the Go Between Bridge about 6.45pm.

The witness stopped and continued to watch for the next 10 minutes as police headed to the scene but she didn't see any activity on the bridge or any more splashes.

Water police and Sandgate Volunteer Marine Rescue vessels, along with the Rescue 500 helicopter spent hours searching the stretch of river.

Police appealed to anyone walking, cycling or driving across the Go Between Bridge about the time of the splash who saw any suspicious activity to come forward.

Investigators believed the splash was visible from the northbound lanes, the pedestrian path or the riverside bikeway and also asked for any dashcam or phone footage from the area to be handed in.
