Shark ADVICE for Redgate Beach area closureCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Update 1:40pm, 12 July 2018
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has extended the Regulation 44 closure for Redgate Beach.
The closure will remain in force until at least 6pm on Thursday 19 July 2018, when a further review will be conducted.
The closure applies to the area between Redgate Beach Carpark and the whole of Redgate Beach due to the slowly decomposing whale carcass that remains in this area.
The decomposing whale carcass may continue to act as an attractant to sharks.
The closure is in place from the shoreline to two kilometres out to sea. This means beaches and waters in this area cannot be used by divers, surfers and swimmers. This closure does not apply to vessels.
Shark sightings should be reported to Water Police on 9442 8600.
