Wollongong City Council Lifeguards continue to work with representatives on Surf Life Saving to monitor shark activity at beaches following the removal of a whale carcass from Waniora Point, Bulli on Friday September 11.
Late this morning Council tasked a shark surveillance helicopter to lap the coast between Stanwell Park and Windang. As there was no shark activity spotted by the helicopter shark patrol, the “danger shark” signage was removed from beaches around Bulli.
The Council has asked 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 September 26 when patrols will return to Wollongong’s 17 patrolled beaches. In the meantime, North Wollongong Beach remains the only open, and patrolled beach.
