The annual Australia Day beachside celebrations at Pearl Beach have been cancelled due to the current COVID outbreak, according to the Pearl Beach Progress Association.

The Association said the decision was made in the best interests of the community.

Pearl Beach has traditionally held Australia Day celebrations as well as a variety of activities and events throughout the year.

The Association’s Publicity Officer, Lynne Lillico, said the group has scheduled a number of interesting events this year to give the community an opportunity to socialise, COVID-permitting.
