Council has closed off access to McCauleys Beach from DH Lawrence Reserve, deeming the area unsafe.
During a recent inspection of beach access in the area, Council staff found a large rock platform at the base of stairs from Craig Street Thirroul has become unstable, where waves have eroded the underlying support.
To ensure public safety, Council has fenced off the stairs.
There is alternate access to McCauley’s Beach via Corbett Avenue.
In the meantime, Council will investigate options for a long-term solution to maintain access at this point.
