Media Release - Coastal Clarity - Hinchinbrook’s New Beach Access Signs

9th April 2024

Hinchinbrook is gearing up to welcome locals and visitors alike to enjoy its stunning beaches, which is why many of us live in this part of the world. Council has installed new beach access signs designed to make it easier for beachgoers to understand what is permitted or not along Council reserves and the beach itself to ensure a safe, responsible and pleasant coastal experience for everyone.

These newly installed signs have been placed at all designated beach access points, offering clear messaging on important information to beach visitors. Each sign is designed to promote responsible behaviour and adherence to legislation and regulations, ultimately fostering a safe and enjoyable environment for all.

To facilitate education for beachgoers about the responsible use of beach access, Council Officers and Queensland Police Service (QPS) personnel will be patrolling these areas. Their presence will not only be monitoring vehicles and behaviour to reinforce the importance of adhering to beach rules but will be focusing on education and providing support to those in need.

Beachgoers are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the information provided on the signs and make themselves aware of the relevant legislation where applicable and follow any directions by QPS and Council Officers to ensure a safe, stress free and memorable experience at Hinchinbrook’s beaches during the school holidays and beyond.

For further information regarding our beach access guidelines, please contact Council’s Natural Assets Team by phone on 4776 4740.
