Four-wheel beach driving and camping at the Worimi Conservation Lands has been reopened following last week’s temporary closure due to extreme weather conditions caused by the east coast low. Beach drivers are advised to exercise caution as the beach is still recovering and areas of soft sand and erosion may be present. Avoid driving along the beach front one hour either side of high tide. If the beach becomes too narrow to pass safely, retrace your route. Do not attempt to bypass the beach by crossing the frontal dune – penalties apply.
Drivers are also warned that there is a deep water hazard just after the Lavis Lane 4WD entrance, which should be avoided for safety.
COVID-19 physical distancing applies – stay safe and help stop the spread.
Visitors are also reminded that physical distancing measures apply when visiting the park. Groups of up to 20 people only are permitted to gather, and people must keep a distance of 1.5 metres from each other. As this is a rapidly changing situation, people are advised to check the NSW National Parks website nswparks.info/covid19.
For updates on COVID-19 restrictions and how to protect yourself and the community, please visit the NSW Health website.
The beach within the Worimi Conservation Lands is unpatrolled. Swimming is not advised. Lifeguards are on duty further north at Birubi Point Surf Lifesaving Club when red and yellow flags displayed. Please swim between the flags.
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).
