Very large high tides over Easter period

12–28 April 2019

This alert applies to the following parks:

Exposed beaches on Cooloola Recreation Area are expecting very large high tides over the coming Easter holiday period with some sections of beach impassable. Teewah Beach is likely to be impassable for at least 2 hours either side of high tide and should be avoided. The beach may be closed to all travel around these times. Mudlo Rocks at Rainbow Beach is currently impassable at all times due to severe erosion.

Motorists should exercise caution at all times, and plan to travel within 2 hours either side of 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 dangerous and prohibited. It is damaging to the environment and can impact nesting wildlife such as turtles and shorebirds. On-the-spot fines will be issued for anyone caught damaging the dunes.

Observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers.

Your safety is our concern, but your responsibility.
