UPDATED 1pm, Monday 5 October

Waverley Council wishes to advise that Bondi Beach is nearing capacity. If people continue to come to Bondi Beach and crowds grow further, restricted access to the sand may need to be implemented.

If you haven’t left for the beach yet, please rethink your trip and check on capacity later in the day.

We will be monitoring beach crowding and capacity throughout the day and you can get updates on Facebook or Twitter @WaverleyCouncil.

For more about how we are keeping you safe whilst enjoying our beaches and parks, see our Summer Open Spaces Plan here.

Rangers and beach ambassadors will continue to monitor visitor numbers in our beach parks. We remind people when there at the beach to limit gatherings to 20 people as per the current Public Health Order. We also encourage people to continue to social distance by 1.5 metres (or a towel-length apart) unless from the same household.

We do not like having to restrict access to the beach, so as a reminder to everyone if beach access is closed or the sand looks busy, please come back another time or use that time to visit our wonderful cafes and other local businesses.
