Beachwatch warning for Illawarra beaches


Beachwatch has issued its forecast for Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama beaches today.

It warns only seven of our 20 beaches are suitable for a dip... they warn that the rest are in danger of pollution from the run off from the overnight rain.

Two beaches - Fisherman's Beach at Port Kembla they've ruled out completely saying rips and rocks at Fisherman's and dangerous rips at Coniston make them extremely unsafe and both beaches are unpatrolled.

Water temperature is a pleasant 25 degrees.
