Weather warning for this weekend
Hazardous conditions are expected for coastal activities, such as rock fishing, swimming and surfing along Newcastle’s coastline.
Numerous accessways to Stockton Beach will remain closed over the weekend with the possibility of further coastal erosion in Stockton due to the impact of the weather. King Street and Little Beach access is likely to remain open but conditions will be monitored and access may change.
Please stay safe when moving around coastal areas, and adhere to warning signs. Coastal erosion can change beach conditions dramatically and quickly. This can lead to sand cliff collapses without warning.
To stay up to date on the weather warnings, please follow the Bureau of Meteorology http://www.bom.gov.au/, and for emergencies, the State Emergency Service https://www.ses.nsw.gov.au/ 13 25 00.
