Safety first following cliff slip near Point Addis
Monday 5 August, 2013
Parks Victoria is urging visitors, especially those between Anglesea Beach and Southside Beach in the Great Otway National Park, to avoid the areas near the cliffs following recent landslip events at Jarosite Headland near Point Addis.
Acting Ranger in Charge Andrew McKinnon said he urged people to take note of the signage and steer clear of the area.
“Nature can be unpredictable and visitor safety is obviously the top priority. We don’t want to have anyone hurt.”
Mr McKinnon said the sandstone cliffs were notoriously unstable, especially following storm events and times of high tide.
“This spectacular coastline is extremely beautiful and attracts huge numbers of visitors every year,” said Mr McKinnon.
“The very dynamic nature of the landscape that people come to view, can often prove very dangerous if visitors ignore warning and advisory signage. We just need people to err on the side of caution to ensure they go home safely to their families after a day at the coast.”
