2020/21 NSW State of the Beaches report released

New South Wales Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has released the 2020/21 State of the Beaches report.

Four of New South Wales’ most pristine stretches of sand including Terrigal Beach have been downgraded compared to previous reports. 

The annual report indicated that New South Wales swimming sites had declined in the past year due to the wettest summer in the region since 2012. 

Although, 93 per cent of the region’s ocean beaches had been given a ‘good’ rating, indicating the beaches are suitable for swimming almost all of the time.
