Rough surf closes Illawarra beaches

Several Illawarra beaches have been closed as looming wet weather and rough surf conditions deter potential beachgoers.

Beaches in Bellambi, Bulli, Corrimal, Stanwell Park, Windang, Wollongong City and Woonona were all closed around lunchtime as rain and dark clouds threatened overhead.

Austinmer, Thirroul, Coledale, Fairy Meadow and North Wollongong beaches have also been closed due to lightning strikes.

Beaches at Coalcliff, Port Kembla, Sandon Point, Scarborough, and Towradgi remain open but could be closed later in the day.
