COVID safe summer

We need your help so we can all enjoy a COVID safe summer.

Please meet social distancing requirements at all times, avoid crowds and maintain good personal hygiene. Stay at home if you're unwell.

Our staff and security personnel will be monitoring crowds at our beaches and parks during summer. If locations reach full capacity to the extent where social distancing requirements cannot be met, we will need to stop further entry until more space becomes available. For location updates check our Facebook page. We will also be updating our VMS sign boards with site-specific information.

Woollahra has some of the most beautiful and historic beaches, bays and inlets in Sydney. There is approximately 16km of harbourside extending from Rushcutters Bay to Watsons Bay. Many of our foreshore areas enjoy views across Port Jackson to northern Sydney.
