Shark ADVICE for Hamelin Bay near AugustaCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Update on 29 August at 2.05pm
Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions staff have now removed the carcass of a killer whale from Hamelin Bay, north of the boat ramp.
Additional caution is recommended by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, as any residue from where the whale carcass was beached may still attract sharks to the area.
Water users should adhere to beach closures advised by local government rangers and check the SharkSmart Activity Map or the Surf Life Saving Twitter feed before heading to their local beaches.
If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600
