Shark advice for Guillotine surfing sport, north of Gracetown

A slowly decomposing whale carcass remains at Guillotine, north of Gracetown in an area bounded by Mt Whaleback and Wilyabrup Cliffs.

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has extended the Regulation 44 closure for the area of coast up to two kilometres north and south of Guillotine surfing spot.

The closure includes the area from the shoreline to two kilometres out to sea. This means beaches and waters in this area cannot be used by divers, surfers and swimmers. This closure does not apply to vessels.

The decomposing carcass may continue to act as an attractant to sharks

Beach closure signs remain in place.

The closure will continue for a month, until 1pm on Thursday, May 2. A further review will be conducted ahead of that time.

If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600
