BEACHES around Ballina on the NSW north coast are expected to remain closed until at least Monday morning.

Beaches from Lennox Head to Lighthouse Beach at Ballina were closed yesterday due to safety concerns after numerous shark sightings.

Following an assessment of the area today, a decision has been made for these beaches to remain closed until at least 10am tomorrow when conditions will be reviewed.


At Evans Head, beaches from Airforce Beach to Chinamans Beach were open today, however, swimmers and surfers are advised to remain vigilant while in the water, and to heed advice from authorities.

Police continue working with Surf Life Saving Australia and local councils.
