Bathing reserves

Local Law sets out what you can and can’t do within a red and yellow flagged beach (bathing reserve). For instance, you can’t bring prohibited aquatic equipment (e.g. kayaks or fishing equipment) within a bathing reserve.

Local Law also regulates what conduct is acceptable within a bathing reserve. Particularly, a person must not do anything that creates a risk to the safety of others.

For public safety, authorised persons have the power to:

  • remove or reduce danger
  • stop dangerous or anti-social conduct
  • require bathers to leave the water
  • seize and detain prohibited equipment.
