Description: Waverley has a number of great places to visit. Our beaches and coastline is a main attraction, but there is also a number of other activities to keep you busy. Our Beaches Just a few kilometres from the centre of Sydney, Waverley has fabulous beaches and beach-side parks at Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte. Coastal Walk Its combination of beaches, parks and spectacular views make the Walk unique. Begun as a state project during the 1930s, it now extends from Ben Buckler Point to the southern end of Waverley Cemetery (and on to Coogee; for information call Randwick Council). It includes Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte Beaches and a medium gradient cliff-top path from Bondi to Tamarama , with occasional seating and several staircases. The beachside parks offer picnic shelters, coin-operated barbecues, play areas, kiosks, toilets and change-rooms. Bondi Pavilion Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach Bondi Pavilion is right on Bondi Beach. Want to go to the theatre? Do a class? See great art? Be part of a festival, a music program or hold your own event? Then Bondi Pavilion is the place to be! Waverley Cemeteries Waverley Council operates two iconic cemetery sites: Waverley Cemetery at Bronte and South Head Cemetery at Vaucluse. Both sites have a rich history with a number of notable people laid to rest at the sites including Australia's first Prime Minister, Sir Edmund Barton, Henry Lawson and several members of the prominent Packer and Fairfax families. The cemeteries are situated in picturesque locations and are operational to this day. Waverley and South Head Cemeteries are open for grave visitation on foot all year round with tours of Waverley Cemetery also available. Bronte House Bronte House is Waverley's oldest property. The estate to which Bronte House belonged was extensive. It included the cliff to the south of the house, where the property’s stables were located, Bronte Gully and Bronte Park and even the beachfront itself. Campbell Parade artworks Bondi Beach is a local and national icon. As part of the exciting upgrade of beach front Campbell Parade, Waverley Council has commissioned Australian artists to celebrate Bondi Beach and its community in public art works. Public art enlivens our streets, parks and public places and reflects community values.

Description: Rock fishing is a dangerous pastime. The Randwick City coastline is one of the MOST dangerous rock fishing areas in Australia. In recent years there have been 18 recorded rock fishing fatalities in the Randwick City area. None of the victims were wearing lifejacket. No matter what your skill level or experience we implore you to always wear a life jacket whilst rock fishing. *See Greg Finney's Story below. Lifejacket law It's now law to wear a lifejacket when rock fishing in the Randwick City Local Government Area. This includes locations such as La Perouse, Little Bay, Malabar, Maroubra, Coogee and Clovelly. The Rock Fishing Safety Act 2016 (NSW) came into effect on 1 December 2016. Due to the number of fatalities, the Randwick City local government area (LGA) has been chosen as the first location to implement this new law. An on the spot fine of $100 applies to those fishing without an approved lifejacket from 1 June 2018. This means you must wear an appropriate lifejacket whenever you rock fish anywhere in the Randwick LGA. Anyone who is helping you rock fish in the Randwick LGA, as well as children in your care, MUST also wear an appropriate lifejacket.

Rock fishing survey In 2013, Randwick City Council conducted an extensive on-the-ground survey of rock fishers to better understand their attitudes and behaviours to help reduce rock fishing fatalities. Download: Survey Report - Rock fishing in Randwick City 2013 PDF, 740.99 KB Safety tips View video entitled: "Don't Put Your Life on the Line here: https://youtu.be/4O-yKhyZJrw The following basic rock fishing safety tips should be followed at all times: Wear a life jacket. Wearing a life jacket can significantly increase your chance of survival if you are washed into the water. Never fish by yourself. Fish in a group of a least three people and within sight of each other. If someone is washed in, one person can stay and help while the other alerts emergency services (dial 000). Mobile phone users can also dial 112 to access emergency services. Inform others of your plans. Always let friends or family know where you are going and when you'II be back. Wear light clothing. Light clothing such as shorts and a spray jacket will let you swim easily If you are washed in. Jumpers may be heavy and difficult to take off. Wear appropriate footwear. Cleats, sandals and sandshoes with non slip soles suit different surfaces. Use the appropriate shoes for the conditions. Carry safety gear. Wear a life jacket or buoyancy vest. Also bring something buoyant that can be easily thrown and held onto, to help you stay afloat. Carry ropes, a float and torches. Fish only in places you know are safe and never fish in exposed areas during rough or large seas. Make sure you are aware of local weather, swell and tidal conditions before going fishing. Listen to weather forecasts or call the weather information line on 1900 937 107. Be aware that conditions may change dramatically in a short period of time. Observe first, fish later. Spend some time (at least 30 minutes) watching your intended spot before fishing to get an idea of the conditions over a full swell/wave cycle. Wave conditions can get worse as the tide changes - you should know whether the tides are high or low and coming in or going out. Plan an escape route in case you are washed in. Stay calm - if you are washed in, swim away from the rocks and look for a safe place to come ashore or stay afloat and wait for help to arrive. Stay alert. Don't ever turn your back on the sea - if the waves, weather or swell threaten your fishing spot then leave immediately. Ask for advice from locals who know the area. They will always tell you when an area is dangerous. Do not jump in if someone is washed into the water. Use your rope or something that floats to rescue the person. If there's an Angel Ring nearby know how to use it. Dial 000 on your mobile phone to get help.

Description: Council is creating a new walking and cycling plan for Woollahra. In our 20-year vision and planning document Woollahra Local Strategic Planning Statement 2020, Council outlined as its first planning priority the delivery of a transport network that supports a healthy, sustainable and connected community. We want people of all ages and needs to have access to travel choices that make it quick and easy to get to local places, our foreshore, parks and villages. That includes active transport (walking and cycling) routes that are seamlessly integrated into our private and public transport networks. This new Active Transport Plan will outline what we want our walking and cycling infrastructure to look like, and where Council will prioritise investment in the walking and cycling networks over the next decade. We want this plan to be shaped by our residents so that it delivers for our community. We’d like to hear from you about your priorities for walking and cycling, and what measures we could take to encourage you to walk or cycle more. You can contribute your ideas in two ways: Come speak to us at one of our pop-up events, which will be held at: Lyne Park, Rose Bay: 8.30am-10.30am & 2pm-4pm, Saturday 30 January Kiaora Place, Double Bay: 8.30am-10.30am & 2pm-4pm, Tuesday 9 February Alternatively, you can share your views via our Active Transport Survey until Friday 26 February 2021. Our project team will collate all ideas and use it to develop a walking and cycling plan that reflects the needs and wishes of Woollahra’s community. This plan will include our long-term vision for walking and cycling in Woollahra, as well as a list of ‘top priority’ walking and cycling projects for Council to implement once the plan is finished. By mid-2021, we will complete the plan in draft and report it to Council for discussion. We will then place it on public exhibition and ask for your feedback again to check that we have got it right.

Description: Over 50 native creatures from tiny lizards to flying foxes call our stunning corner of the world home. Our 5.8 hectares of coastal native vegetation is squeezed between development and the ocean. https://media1-production-mightynetworks.imgix.net/asset/18698348/1611077582979.png?ixlib=rails-0.3.0&fm=jpg&q=75&auto=format&w=1400&h=1400&fit=max Our aim is to continue to improve the quality of these bushland areas to maintain a healthy coast and provide habitat for the local wildlife. By improving conditions for priority vegetation sites, we hope to ensure precious natural bushland sites and endangered species are not lost. This will be achieved through: bush regeneration programs buffer planting reducing weed species and reducing stormwater pollution into vegetation. By doing this we also want to make a difference in the future and ensure at least 40 per cent of local priority vegetation spots are in good condition by 2030.

Description: Published Date15/01/2021 News Topic Planning & Development Development Applications can be submitted anywhere, anytime and tracked easily thanks to the full implementation of NSW Planning Portal which will accept Randwick City development and building approvals from Friday 1 January 2021. This change affects all Development Applications, Construction Certificates, appointments of a Principal Certifier, Occupation Certificates, Subdivision Certificates and Complying Development Certificates. Private Certifiers will also be required to submit their certificates through the Portal. The only applications that can be accepted via Council’s own online lodgement portal are pre-lodgement applications and tree permit applications. Local Approval applications (i.e. footway dining) can be accepted over the counter at Council’s Administration Centre. “The new portal is clear and simple, so residents can track the progress of their DAs and planners have access to all the information they need, including from other state agencies,” stated Randwick Mayor Danny Said. “This will make the process faster and easier for everyone involved.” Residents need only to register for a secure NSW Planning Portal account to start the process. From there they can upload all necessary documentation, pay the required fees and receive notifications as the application progresses, such as when Council makes a decision. Use of the NSW Planning Portal for all planning applications will become mandatory for all councils from July 2021.
