The current weather conditions, have prompted Surf Lifesaving NSW to urge the public to be cautious if visiting our coastline.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a Hazardous Surf Warning and a Marine Wind Warning for the NSW coastline including the Illawarra coastline today, that will extend South to the Batemans Coast and Eden Coast tomorrow, Tuesday 27 October.

With large and powerful sea swells of up to three and a half metres and strong winds forecast, conditions will be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, boating, surfing and swimming. People should consider staying out of the water and avoid walking near surf-exposed areas. Rock fishers should avoid coastal rock platforms exposed to the ocean and seek a safe location that is sheltered from the surf.
