Very large high tides affecting beach driving on Moreton Island

This alert applies to the following parks:

Beaches on Moreton Island Recreation Area are expecting very large high tides over the coming weekend, 19th and 20th January, and continuing into the following week. Sections of beach are likely to be impassable at high tide. Beach driving within 2 hours either side of high tide should be avoided.

Motorists should exercise caution at all times, and plan to travel at low tide, if safe to do so. Beach access points and campsite access may sustain some erosion creating steep drop-offs. Drivers should slow down, stop and check access conditions before deciding if it is safe to traverse.

Remember, driving over vegetated dunes is prohibited. On-the-spot fines will be issued for anyone caught damaging the dunes.

Observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers.

Check Park Alerts regularly for updates on current park conditions.
