The City of Greater Geraldton temporarily closed the Point Moore access tracks at the weekend, citing increased coastal surge and swell caused by weather fronts.

In effect from 4pm on Thursday, the decision was made to ensure the safety of beach goers.

It’s the first time the boom gates have been closed since they were installed on Friday June 3, as part of the council’s commitment to helping manage and protect the coastal vegetation at Point Moore.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, there were winds of up to 40km/h and thunderstorms in Geraldton on Friday.

The gates remained closed on Monday as the city continued to monitor the weather conditions and the beach.
