Ferry service disruptions continue

White water at the channel entrance shows the location of the sandbar that is causing ferry service disruptions

Disruptions to the Palm Beach ferry service continue due to the condition of the Little Box Head to Lobster Beach Channel.
Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association president Ms Peta Colebatch said a sandbar at the channel entrance was the cause of the ongoing ferry service disruptions.
A photograph taken by the group on November 8 showed the location of the break on the sandbar at the entrance to the channel, which had not been dredged.
The latest report of the Palm Beach ferry service being diverted occurred on Tuesday, November 21, when the ferry scraped the bottom at the entrance to the Little Box Head to Lobster Beach Channel and needed to divert to Patonga.
