Beaches in the bay have been rated as poor today (1 December 2017) due to heavy rainfall causing runoff from stormwater outlets. The affected beaches are marked as red on the Beach Report map.

Conditions are expected to improve as the rain subsides and the stormwater runoff is flushed by tides.

The water at these beaches is not considered suitable to swim in. Swimmers are advised to check the Beach Report for updates before swimming at affected beaches.
