22 March 2016 MyBeachInfo Apps and Site Launched

Following the success of the MyRoadInfo website and free apps developed to provide local roads information throughout northern NSW, a new MyBeachInfo system has been launched to keep Coffs Harbour locals and visitors instantly updated on beach conditions.

The free apps and website are very easy to use. MyBeachInfo features a map of the coastline which displays icons for beach openings, closures and cautions.

Just like MyRoadInfo, users are also able to set up favourite locations and receive notifications when their status changes.

 The data is updated instantly by Council’s Lifeguards to reflect current known conditions on our beaches.

“MyBeachInfo is a fantastic tool that is really going to help us promote beach safety,” said Greg Hackfath, Council’s Team Leader Lifeguard Services.

“Reaching the thousands of tourists who visit our region every year is a constant goal for Lifeguards, Surf Lifesavers and the emergency services. It’s a fact that it’s often the overseas visitors who can get into serious trouble in the surf because they don’t understand the dangers.

“The MyBeachInfo site and apps can be instantly translated into 90 languages with one click, which is brilliant. We’d urge all local tourism operators to promote MyBeachInfo to visitors.”

MyBeachInfo also provides links to other beach information such as patrol times and dates, as well as a link to the existing Surf Life Saving Australia’s www.beachsafe.org.au  

Beachgoers are urged to download the FREE MyBeachInfo app which is available for iPhones and Android devices.

MyBeachInfo was developed by Ballina Shire Council and Lismore City Council, as part of a NOROC (Northern Rivers Regional Organisation of Councils) resource sharing project.
