Gold Coast beaches closed amid dangerous conditions

The majority of Gold Coast beaches have been closed due to the wild weather brought on by Tropical Cyclone Seth.

City of Gold Coast confirmed on Sunday morning that all beaches north of, and including, Burleigh North have been closed due to the dangerous conditions.

Seth remains in waters around around 700 kilometres northeast of Brisbane as a category one system and is tipped to slowly weaken as it heads towards the Gold Coast over the coming days.


It is not expected to directly impact the coastline in the next 48 hours but it will cause hazardous surf conditions and abnormally high tides across southeast Queensland northern New South Wales.
