Safety alerts: Burwood Beach
Swimmers and boardriders are advised that there is a possibility of an increased presence of sharks at Burwood Beach. This is due to remnants of a juvenile humpback whale that is now in the tidal zone, in an inaccessible location on the rocks on the southern headland of the beach. For any enquiries please contact the NPWS Lower Hunter area office on (02) 4946 4100.
