This alert applies to the following park:
- Cooloola Recreation Area, Great Sandy National ParkSunshine Coast
Some restrictions to the camping area on Teewah Beach have been implemented following rocks dislodging from the sand dunes in the area. There have been instances of dislodged rocks throughout the camping area resulting in large boulders rolling into camp sites at the base of the foredunes and posing a risk to campers.
QPWS has engaged an expert geotechnical company to assess the issue and provide advice for minimising the risk to park visitors. High risk areas are marked by fencing and safety signs. Visitors are required to stay outside the marked areas. Please do not enter these areas, as a dislodged rock could cause serious injury or death.
QPWS also recommends people do not climb on the dunes and ensure children are kept off the dunes and out of high risk areas. On the spot fines may be issued for people not adhering to the regulations.
Observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers, and do not enter closed areas.
Your safety is our concern but your responsibility.
In an emergency situation, call 000.
