Yipee! Finally safe to hit the beach 

Lifeguards have reopened Town and Flynns Beaches with flood debris clearing significantly. 

High tides will still have an impact and may result in closures for brief periods over the weekend. 

Senior Lifeguard Grant Hudson say  there is still two to three metre swells at Town Beach but the volume and size of flood debris washing up has decreased today.

"The swell is still a decent size and we encourage people to speak to the lifeguards at Town Beach to check on conditions but we don't have the problem today of large logs and debris washing onto the beach, which is what caused the safety concerns earlier in the week," Mr Hudson said.

Flynns Beach has also been reopened but may be closed during the high tides over coming days.

"We will monitor Flynns Beach very closely today and over the weekend, particularly during the high tides. The sea levels are still pushing powerful surges up the beach and we may have to close the beach during the high tides which are predicted around lunch time today and moving into the afternoon over the weekend,"  confirmed Mr Hudson.

Large swells are also expected to hit the Mid North Coast on Sunday. 

Beach goers are reminded to continue to check conditions with lifeguards and follow the key safety message of "No Flags, No Swim."
