This means that Bastion Point has been closed to the public due to these temporary and unsafe conditions.
Never fear though as Mallacoota has many more beautiful beaches that are still publicly accessible, including Betka Beach, Quarry Beach, and Secret Beach. More details about these and other beaches are available on the Life Saving Victoria website, https://lsv.com.au.
These beaches are not patrolled, and the public are reminded to be mindful of local conditions and their own swimming abilities.
The same storm events also brought a lot of kelp to the Bastion Point Boat Ramp which is currently being cleared to ensure that the boat ramp is operational for summer. Given the volume of kelp and sand being removed, the kelp is being relocated off site with appropriate approvals, to ensure that the small beach adjacent to the boat ramp remains accessible.
