Cape Trib Information Centre - News Update

Rainfall – we have had about 30mm in the last week, forecast is that the weekend will be fine with 10 to 15 knot winds

Roads – the road to Cape Trib is open with no flooding, there are minor delays at Thompson Creek just north of Coconut Beach due to roadworks. There is single lane section there with a give way sign for northbound traffic.

The Bloomfield Track is open to 4WDs only and has been partially graded. Graded sections can be very slippery after rain. The creek crossings are less than knee deep and Emmagen Creek is very loose and requires 4WD

Tides – the high tides are ¾ of the way up the beach and occurring early to mid morning. Lows are very low and occurring early afternoon.

The area is very busy at present and tours and accommodation needs to be pre – booked to avoid disappointment. There are small queues at the Ferry during peak times
