Shark ADVICE for Guillotine Surfing Spot, north of GracetownCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Update on 5 June at 1:00pm
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has extended the Regulation 44 closure for the area of coast up to two kilometres north and south of Guillotine surfing spot - bounded by Mt Whaleback in the south and Willyabrup Cliffs in the north - due to the slowly decomposing whale carcass that remains at Guillotine, north of Gracetown.
The closure includes the area from the shoreline to two kilometres out to sea. This means beaches and waters in this area cannot be used by divers, surfers and swimmers. This closure does not apply to vessels.
The decomposing carcass may continue to act as an attractant to sharks
Beach closure signs remain in place.
The closure will continue for a month, until 1pm on Wednesday 3 July 2019. A further review will be conducted ahead of that time.
