Tsunamis

Tsunamis are not common in New South Wales. However, because Wollongong is in a coastal area, we need to be ready for the possibility of a tsunami.

Tsunami emergencies are managed by the NSW State Emergency Service (SES).

The SES website has information to help you prepare and respond if a tsunami happens.

Council's lifeguards and volunteer lifesavers may also provide support. If they're on duty, they will direct people to leave the beach if a tsunami warning is issued.

Please make sure you follow the directions of emergency services, lifeguards and lifesavers.
