Four-wheel drivers are advised to drive with care when visiting Stockton Beach in the Worimi Conservation Lands over the next week. Heavy vehicle traffic over the holidays has churned up sand at the junction of the Lavis Lane 4WD access track and the beach area, causing vehicles to become easily bogged. Please deflate your tyres according to your vehicles manual and drive according to the conditions.
Drivers are also advised to be mindful of the increase in visitors to the park over the holidays and to slow down to a maximum of 20km/hr when passing pedestrians and other vehicles. Keep a close watch out for small children and other pedestrians on the waterfront.
Tide/swell warning: Plan to travel on the beach 1 hour either side of high tide only. The current large swell combined with high tides is making the beach impassable in some areas. Do not attempt to traverse through water. If the beach becomes impassable, turn around and back track on the route that you have driven to exit the beach. Do not drive over the frontal dune or any vegetation – fines apply.
Please remember – Drive only according to your vehicles capability, your level of experience and current beach conditions.
BEFORE YOU TRAVEL – CHECK THE WEATHER, TIDE & SWELL CONDITIONS ON THE CHART ON THE RIGHT OR BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
In an emergency dial 000 or, if no mobile reception, try 112. If calling from the beachfront, advise operator of closest distance marker (markers are not to scale).
