Hey folks. I've just moved to Sydney and went for a quick look at Dolls Point today. Is this still a kitable location? Any particular rules/regs for where it's allowed/not, or where you can/can't rig up?

Cheers.

When I looked the other day I thought it was a no go and went back to 1st carpark etc around the corner. I didn't spend too long looking, so could be wrong. The council are moving sand from one place to another place, and the works won't be going on forever.

Hey Bonk, welcome to Syd~ it's gets super busy with families On the sand at Dolls on a hot day in summer, and Its a bottle neck for boats coming through this channel compared to the bay. This also makes the current quite strong on the in and out going tides to the point where it can really help to stay up wind on an out going tide in NE wind, or send you down wind with an incoming tide in NE.

It's all still kiteable as CJ said, but it's only getting busier so we've been put on notice at various times for kites crashing near people or kiters pushing right-of-way too hard with power boats or sailing races. So best to keep wide where possible.

The spots banned in Botany are around the airport, Kurnell estuary, and Port Botany shipping area.
I think Kiting NSW has a map of this.
Syd harbour is all banned. Eastern beaches also no go. Northern beaches and Cronulla are go.

most people prefer central Brighton Le Sands cos there is more car parking and we kind of take over a spot where beach goers can see its full of kites.
Have a good one!
