Mindarie beaches are now open but extra caution is advisedCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Beaches around Mindarie – where a fatal shark incident occurred one kilometre offshore last Sunday – are open again.
The beaches that have been reopened by the City of Wanneroo are located either side of Mindarie Boat ramp - from Claytons Beach and Surf Spot south of the ramp and Quinns Beach to the north.
Although the beaches are now open again, given the severity of Sunday’s incident, the department advises water users to take additional caution in the Mindarie area.
What to do:
- Obey beach closures advised by Local Government Rangers or Surf Life Saving WA.
- Take extra caution in the area by not surfing or diving when large schools of fish are present.
- Keep informed of the latest detection and sighting information by checking the SharkSmart website or Surf Life Saving WA’s Twitter feed.
- If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600. All shark sighting information reported to Water Police is provided to response agencies so beaches can be closed if needed, and to the public on the SharkSmart website and Surf Life Saving WA Twitter feed.
