As the long weekend hotted up, Sydney-siders made their way to Bondi Beach in droves. But as the crowd grew, so did a very real danger. Mark Kriedemann captured it all on camera.
Throngs of people made their way to Bondi Beach on the last day of the long weekend, bustling past the signs still cautioning visitors of the need for social distancing,
Waverly Council warned that Bondi, Coogee and other eastern suburbs beaches were “nearing capacity” on the sweltering Labour Day holiday.
“If people continue to come to Bondi Beach and crowds grow further, restricted access to the sand is likely to be implemented within the next hour 2-3pm”, Waverley Council wrote in an alert at 1.30pm.
