Local Navigation Warning

Port Name Here

Location: Sydenham Inlet – Bemm river

DATE:  09 March 2022

DETAILS:  A recent flooding event in East Gippsland has caused flooding in the Bemm River catchment. Sydenham Inlet has broken through the dunes and opened to the ocean naturally last evening. These events are normally temporary until the floodwaters recede.

Mariners are advised to stay well clear of temporarily open entrances to avoid being carried away through the entrance by strong ebb flows.

Mariners are also advised against an attempt to navigate out into the ocean over natural sand bars that form outside temporary entrances.

Bar crossings are regarded as extremely dangerous and can cause serious personal injury or death when unfavorable environmental conditions exist.

Mariners are invited to contact the Harbour Master on 0427 610 025 should they wish to discuss port entry for any Ports under the Management of Gippsland Ports. (see website for details);
