Beach Driving Temporarily Closed on Worimi Conservation Lands
Due to changing weather conditions bringing large tides and swells, it has been decided to temporarily close vehicle access from the Gan Gan 4wd access Anna Bay to the Lavis Lane 4wd access Williamtown.
Beach front driving between the Gan Gan 4WD entrance Anna Bay to Lavis Lane 4WD entrance Williamtown will be closed in both directions from COB Wednesday 12th May 2021 until 09:00AM Monday 17th May 2021 when it will be reviewed.
Commercial tour operators will continue to operate in the Northern end of the park. Commercial activities and public access will continue to be allowed in the Recreational Vehicle Area (RVA) via Lavis Lane Entry.
Ganyamalbaa campground is open and is accessible from Lavis Lane.
Please be advised that this will not affect the Fern Bay 4WD access to the Recreational Vehicle Area (RVA).
Please be aware that as the beach recovers from the storms there may be changing conditions with additional hazards, these include large pools of water, steep intertidal zone, soft sand and unstable sand banks.
Do not drive through water within the Recreational Vehicle Area for safety and environmental reasons. These large bodies of fresh water are sanctuary zones for flora and fauna during recovery from the storm.
Drivers are urged to drive with caution and be prepared for unpredictable driving conditions.
The Ganyamalbaa Camp Area has re-opened from 28th April 2021 until 31st may 2021.

Here’s some great tips on beach driving:
This video has been produced by ARB 4×4 Accessories. The Worimi Conservation Lands supports the beach driving techniques outlined in the video, however recognises that there are other 4WD brands and products available.
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).
