This is considered a long way away and means you maybe travelling through a fire zone or have falling trees to deal with so the beach is more likely to be a safer place. Please be aware to keep away from areas of the beach that falls victim to ember attacks. Keep a close eye inland and if necessary head into the water but move along the beach away from any bush that may be on fire.
