Australia Day celebrations cancelled at Pearl Beach

The Pearl Beach Progress Association has cancelled its annual Australia Day beach side celebrations on Wednesday, January 26.

Association publicity officer Ms Lynne Lillico said the decision was made "sadly in the best interests of the community ... due to the current Covid pandemic".

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

"This coming year, Covid permitting, we have scheduled a number of interesting events to give the community an opportunity to socialise, enjoy and overcome the isolation and lockdowns that we have all had to experience."

Ms Lillico said: "Pearl Beach village is situated between Broken Bay and Brisbane Water National Park and is home to small and caring community who enjoy the natural attributes of such a beautiful environment with an amazing diversity of plants, birds and animals.

"The beach acts as a magnet to locals and visitors who are attracted to the natural location and swimming in the Ocean Rock Pool."
