Hazardous swell forecast for Newcastle coastline

10 June 2022

City of Newcastle (CN) is preparing for a forecast weather event with large swell coinciding with a high tide which has the potential to cause damage along Newcastle's coastline.

This event, which is expected to peak overnight Sunday 12 June, is likely to impact sections of Newcastle's coastline that received damage previously following large swell and severe weather events in March and April.

CN will continue to monitor its coastal facilities and assets along the Newcastle coastline including areas in Stockton where emergency works have previously been undertaken in response to weather event damage caused earlier in the year.

Further closures of accessways onto Stockton Beach may be required for public safety. A current list of beach accessway closures at Stockton Beach can be viewed here.

CN reminds the community to follow safety warnings and to abide by all road and beach closures.
