Be responsible on Cable Beach over Christmas break

Released 18 December 2017

Shire of Broome Rangers are increasing their presence on Cable Beach over the Christmas break to encourage safety and responsibility.

Vehicles, dogs, littering and fires will all be targeted by Rangers to minimise conflict between our various beach users.

Shire of Broome Manager Health, Emergency and Rangers, Ty Matson, says the aim is to increase awareness and compliance with local laws initially among residents, which will then carry into the tourist season when numbers on the beach increase considerably.

Matters relating to dogs to be targeted include dogs off the leash in prohibited areas, failure to adequately control dogs and not promptly removing excrement.

Vehicle matters include exceeding the 15kmh speed limit, parking and driving on dunes and other prohibited areas, using unregistered off-road vehicles, and driving during beach closures.

Littering, fires and horses being ridden on the beach without a permit will also be given attention.

The operation will include Shire Rangers working with Broome Police and Yawuru Rangers.
