Northern beaches expected to pack again this weekend with scorcher forecasted

THIS weekend is set to see temperatures soar, and with the heat, Wollongong’s northern beaches are again expected to be packed with Sydney visitors.

Wollongong City Council is reminding locals and visitors to plan ahead.

Local residents and Sydney visitors escaping heatwave conditions forecasted by the Bureau of Meteorology are likely to see parking at a premium at more popular destinations like Stanwell Park, Austinmer, Thirroul, Sandon Point and Bulli. The mercury will nudge 30 degrees in Sydney’s western suburbs on Friday, before climbing into the low 40s on Saturday and Sunday.

The Bureau have forecasted temperatures to climb to 35 on Saturday and 33 on Sunday in Wollongong.

Council is advising those considering a dip to make a pool booking, swim between the flags, and keep your COVID distance when on the sand, or in busy areas.

Book a swim at Helensburgh, Thirroul or Corrimal pools by visiting Council’s ‘Book My Swim” or, if you’re driving, it’s advised to get in early at one of the north’s beaches to find a park.
