Anzac Day on the beaches

Posted by: on April 25th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Many folks out walking this Anzac morning, but only the tiniest of waves along the beaches. Out at sea it’s 0.6 m at 13 seconds from 173³ and along the beaches the waves are in the ankle to calf high range with the odd waist high bomb set.

We should see a sunny day with light wind and a high of 26C. Water’s still around 22C. Not that it matters much, but first tide of the day is the high at 0940.

Outlook is for the tininess to persist through next week. Some of the long range forecasts are showing the prospect of an improvement in 10 days or so. Definitely in the “maybe..” category I’d say.

Go well with your day!

By Order of the Federal Government, our beaches are open for exercise only – surfing, swimming, running and walking.  Beaches will be closed due to unsafe conditions and or mass gatherings. All pools are closed at this time.

Please see some commonly asked questions about the beach closures.

If people are sunbaking or gathering on the beach, they will be asked to move along by our lifeguards, rangers or the police.

Due to the risk of Coronavirus and acting on direction of NSW and Federal Governments, Council has closed many public areas. View the latest updates on the evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In addition, it is against the law to gather with more than two people in public, except:

  • for members of the same household
  • where the gathering is essential for work or education
  • If you go out, stay 1.5 metres away from other people at all times.

The rules are also now enforceable and Police are issuing fines of $1000 for individuals and $5000 for companies. These are difficult circumstances and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
