Tips to keep everyone safe this summerIt’s no secret the Shire has an abundance of beautiful beaches, loved by tourists and locals alike. So as the weather warms up, it’s guaranteed there will be alot of people wanting to hit the beach for some water or boating action. Parking spots – especially at Gnarabup and Gracetown – will be hot property!
If you can, please consider walking, cycling or car-pooling to the beach. Otherwise, for the safety of pedestrians and motorists please remember the following:
- Check signs for any restrictions and park within marked bays only
- Don’t park in emergency entry and exit points
- No parking or stopping on footpaths, solid white or yellow lines, median strips or traffic islands
- When parallel parking on road, park in the same direction as traffic flow
- Please don’t park on vegetation - not only does this damage vegetation, it might start a fire
- And remember between 12am to 12pm, the larger parking bays at Gnarabup boat are for boat trailers only.
Please also be respectful of our coastal environments by sticking to established footpaths.
We’ve already been looking into future boating needs within the Shire and next year, we'll review car and boat trailer parking as part of a broader investigation into the future needs of the Prevelly/Gnarabup coast. We want the best outcomes for the community, while protecting the precious environment, so we’ll need to consider many factors including road safety, bushfire risk, aboriginal heritage and community priorities.
As for a bus service, unfortuantely there is no public transport currently available in in the Shire. UPDATE (23 January 2024): The Beach Bus trial has been successful in its application for funding via our Community Development and Events Grants.
