Beach users asked to exercise caution at Bulli Beach & surrounds

Monday 14 September 2020

Wollongong City Council Lifeguards continue to work with representatives on Surf Life Saving  to monitor shark activity at our beaches following the removal of the dead whale on Friday 11 September 2020.

Late this morning Council tasked our shark surveillance helicopter to lap the coast between Windang and Stanwell Park. As there was no shark activity spotted by the helicopter shark patrol, we will remove our “danger shark” signage from beaches around Bulli.

We ask beach users to continue to be careful should they return to the water, and to be mindful of conditions particularly in areas where there is significant bird activity in the water as this indicates schools of fish, which can attract sharks.

The 20/21 swim season will officially start on Saturday 26 September when patrols will return to Wollongong’s 17 patrolled beaches. In the meantime, North Wollongong Beach remains the only open, and patrolled beach.
