BUNDABERG police would like teenagers to think before posting on social media after a North Bundaberg party got out of control ending in at least six arrests.

On Wednesday night police were called in regards to noise levels at a party on Cheetham Ct.

Bundaberg police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Erwin Hoffmann said just after 7pm noise complaints were made about the party at North Bundaberg.

"Police got called to a noisy party complaint and responded where things were going reasonably okay," he said.

"Later on that evening at around 10pm police responded to an out-of-control incident out there where there were about 80 juveniles and the majority of them were intoxicated."

Snr Sgt Hoffman said there was havoc on the small North Bundaberg street and described the behaviour of party goers as "absolutely disgraceful" - with many young people "turning on police".

"We had to send 12 police officers out there and five vehicles," he said.

"That's a lot of resources to have to deploy to a party which just got out of control.

"People need to realise you can't host these sort of parties in suburban areas."

Snr Sgt Hoffman said the party wasn't fair on surrounding neighbours.

"It is just not on and shows total disregard to the other people who live in that area who have to put up with the damage and the noise and the general amenity in that area," he said.

Cheetham Ct resident Jennifer Ryan said the party was so loud she packed up and went to stay with her daughter.

"The sound was pounding so we packed up and left to stay with my daughter and could still hear it 3km away," Mrs Ryan said.

"It was just ridiculous like we were in a club or something.

"As we were leaving the street there were cars everywhere, you could hardly get down the street.

"We saw the police turn up and were glad we left."

Snr Sgt Hoffman confirmed it was a registered party and Mrs Ryan said the neighbourhood was notified the day before.

"It was a registered party but police aren't responsible for the control of a party, police aren't responsible for limiting numbers of drunken teenagers who turn up to these parties," he said.

"Where's the parental control in relation to this?

"People hosting these types of events should feel thoroughly ashamed of themselves."

A 28-year-old Svensson Heights man has been charged with public nuisance and is scheduled to appear in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on May 8.

An 18-year-old Bundaberg South woman was charged with public nuisance and obstruct police and is due to appear in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on May 4.

Two girls, aged 14 and 15 and two 16-year-old boys will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justice Act in relation to public nuisance and obstructing police offences.

Queensland Ambulance Service crews also attended and assessed a handful of people on site.

A QAS spokeswoman confirmed one female was taken to Bundaberg Hospital with minor cuts and bruises.
