Closed areas: Area closed - Pink Caves
Pink Caves are closed to visitors because they are extremely unsafe to visit.
The caves are filled with water at high tide. Even at low tide they can be dangerous, as ocean swell sends unpredictable waves sweeping into the caves and across the rock shelf. Sudden rogue waves can cause serious injury and may drag visitors across the rocks or out to sea.
There’s no lifeguard service in this area and access for emergency services is limited. There’s no approved walking track to this location. Access to the caves involves walking over a rock shelf which is slippery, uneven and dangerous.
Visitors should take care when traversing all rock shelves and coastal areas located within Munmorah State Conservation Area.
