Platypus Beach closed

Platypus Beach at Mirani is being closed from today due to Coronavirus social distancing requirements.

Following discussions with Queensland Police Service in the lead-up to the Easter long-weekend, the decision was made to close Platypus Beach.

It will remain closed until further notice.

Platypus Beach is a popular recreation spot where people gather, rather than just an area for exercise.

The State Government closed National Parks and other areas where people can gather, such as waterholes, a week ago.

The access road to Platypus Beach will be closed this morning.

Police can take enforcement action against any members of the public blatantly flouting social distancing requirements.
