Smoke and glass-free beaches

Smoking and glass containers are banned from all beaches.

Several designated foreshore grass areas are also glass-free between 9pm to 6am from mid-November to end-January each year.

The bans aim to reduce the negative impacts of smoking and glass on our beaches. Cigarette butts are a litter and environmental nuisance while glass is a safety and litter issue. Both cause untold damage to people, wildlife and the coast.

So please do your bit and use the bins located in grassed foreshore areas and adjacent to sand areas to dispose of your butts, bottles and other litter. Your cooperation will contribute to a safe, healthy and litter-free coastal environment for everyone to enjoy.
