A temporary alcohol ban will be in place within Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve on four key dates this summer. Alcohol consumption will not be permitted within the reserve on:
- Boxing Day, Wednesday 26 December 2018
- New Year’s Eve, Monday 31 December 2018
- New Year’s Day, Tuesday 1 January 2019
- Australia Day, Saturday 26 January 2019
The ban will be in force all day for the full 24hr period for all of the days listed.
The temporary alcohol ban applies to all parts of Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve, including the north bank of the Brunswick River near Harrys Hill (also known as Christmas Beach), and the Brunswick River picnic area at the mouth of Marshalls Creek (also known as the Oyster Lease). NPWS officers will be on-site to supervise the ban with support from NSW Police.
The aim of the temporary alcohol ban is to promote a safe and relaxed atmosphere while protecting the environment, and to avoid the anti-social behaviour that has occurred in previous years on these days.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, call NPWS on 02 6670 8600.
