They brought the victim to his own yacht, where most of the group had medical backgrounds, including two doctors.

The man was on a sailing holiday with ten friends and the group were taking it in turns to paddle board on the water, Queensland Police said.

An Australian man attacked by a shark at Cid Harbour off Australia's north-eastern coast, close to the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, has died overnight.

The 33-year-old Victorian man was reportedly swimming off a private vessel just after 5.30pm local time (8.30pm NZ Time) on Monday when he was attacked, resulting in significant leg and wrist injuries.

Shark control equipment had been temporarily placed in Cid Harbour following the first two attacks but was removed on September 27 after the potentially risky sharks were removed.

"CPR was ongoing for a very long time, and every solid effort was made to try and save that man's life".

In the September attacks, a 46-year-old woman and a 12-year-old girl were bitten by sharks one day apart in the Cid Harbour region. She lost her leg in the attack.

The last shark attack in the Whitsunday Islands before this Australian spring's spate, occurred on February 13, 2010.

Daniel Gschwind, chief executive of the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, which represents more than 3,000 tourism businesses, said on Tuesday that authorities were looking into why the unprecedented series of attacks has occurred and whether environmental changes were a factor.

He said: "We see this pattern time and time again - all around the world - and we don't really understand why it is".

The species of sharks involved in the attacks have not been identified.

He died of his injuries, police confirmed early on Tuesday.

"The Cid Harbour area is not covered by the Queensland Government's Shark Control Program, which operates at 85 of Queensland's most popular beaches", he said. Critics argued that killing sharks was not the answer.
